UFC Atlantic City video highlights: Ricky Simon's wild TKO of Merab Dvalishvili


In a fast-paced fight, Merab Dvalishvili’s striking volume and takedowns were too much for octagon newcomer Ricky Simon. Or so it seemed.

Dvalishvili (7-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) looked to be on his way to a unanimous decision over Simon (13-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC). But in the final minute, Simon put a mounted guillotine on Dvalishvili – who kicked his way to the final horn. It appeared Dvalishvili had survived the choke to go to the judges’ scorecards. But instead, referee Liam Kerrigan called the fight a TKO win for Simon, apparently determining he was out when the round ended. Simon turned a sure loss in his promotional debut into a miraculous rally for a win.

The bantamweight bout was part of the preliminary card of today’s UFC Fight Night 128 event at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. It aired on FS1 following an additional prelim on UFC Fight Pass and ahead of the main card on FS1.
