Arnold Barboza isn't playing around in his journey to (hopefully) fight the likes of Jose Ramirez. Barboza's bout with William Silva ended in the third round with a body shot to the ribs of his now 27-3 opponent. With that, Silva crumpled to the mat, holding his middle section while the official slowly counted down from ten.
Silva clearly hadn't been protecting himself from the body shots, instead focusing on his head and being offensive-minded in the ring. His posture caught up with him, and Barboza's well-timed punch was both unexpected and powerful, dropping his opponent with ease.
