After a surprising victory over Gaetano Pirrello at UFC Vegas 38, Douglas Silva de Andrade celebrated lavishly. The 36-year-old had a lot to prove after losing to Lerone Murphy in January, but he did so in spectacular fashion with a first-round knockout victory. Andrade caught his Belgian opponent in mid-air and stunned him with a stunning left hook that knocked him out. His clinical performance also earned him the Performance of the Night title, netting him an additional £36,900.
Immediately following the battle, medics rushed to Pirrello, but Andrade appeared unfazed, celebrating his victory by twice backflipping off the cage to the pleasure of the ‘Sin City’ audience.
STRAIGHT OUT OF MID-AIR!
