UFC Fight Night 88 showcased a bantamweight battle between a pair of up-and-comers vying for the same seat. Cody Garbrandt (pictured) put his perfect 8-0 professional record on the line against Brazilian Thomas Almeida, whose resume was unblemished through 20 outings.
Well, it’s 20-1 now.
Garbrandt brought the heat early and often, and Almeida wasn’t able to return fire. A vicious right hook spelled the beginning of the end for Almeida.
UFC Fight Night 88 took place Sunday inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
