Knockout like Poatan by Gabriel Braga

The fight started with Gabriel in the center of the fighting area. He worked with stomps, walking towards Gonzalez. The North American was spinning, waiting for the best moment to get closer and throw a few punches to get the takedown. The Tupiniquim athlete defended the first attack, but was taken to the cage halfway through the period.

Gonzalez hit the fence, with the Brazilian kneeling, but was unable to reach his back. With 50 seconds left in the final, Gabriel managed to free himself and returned to the center of the cage. From there, he shortened with a jab and straight to connect with a powerful left cross, which took down the North American in the final second. Braga still landed one more blow on the ground before the referee intervened and declared a technical knockout.
