How about one final video highlight from this past weekend’s UFC Fight Night 30, which includes Luke Barnatt’s premature celebration but eventual submission win over Andre Craig?

The middleweight bout, which streamed online ahead of Saturday’s FOX Sports 2 main card from Phones4u Arena in Manchester, England, saw Barnatt (7-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) quickly recover from some early power shots from Craig (9-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC). However, after scoring knockdowns, the Englishman celebrated a bit too early.

However, it was no harm, no foul for the fighter, who eventually cinched up the submission win in the second round. Check out the highlights above.
