UFC Fight Night 27: Justin Edwards Vs. Brandon Thatch

Justin Edwards vs. Brandon Thatch

Back to the welterweight division, as Justin Edwards (8-2) looks to make it two in a row vs. Brandon Thatch (8-1), who is making his UFC debut. Thatch previously fought in the RFA. The referee will be Rob Hinds.

We had a delay in the start as action was also moved to FOX Sports 1. That’s new.

Round 1: Wow….Thatch making quite the debut, dropping Edwards with a flurry that includes a stiff kick. Edwards ties him up, and eats a nasty knee to the face. Thatch with a huge head kick that just misses. Edwards is being beaten to the pulp and the crowd is enjoying each minute of it. Again, Edwards goes down and Thatch continues to punish until the ref steps in.

That was an incredible way to debut in the UFC.
