Julian Marquez (6-1) earned his way into the UFC with a crushing knockout of Phil Hawes (4-2), and you need to see – and hear – the finish.
After an opening round in which both men had some shining moments, Marquez took over in the second, walking forward with strikes and wobbling Hawes before finishing him off with a vicious high kick in the featured bout of Tuesday’s Dana White’s Contender Series 4 event.
The middleweight contest served as the featured bout of the event at The Ultimate Fighter Gym in Las Vegas. As with all Dana White’s Contender Series events, the card streamed on UFC Fight Pass.
Marquez was later awarded a UFC contract for his efforts.
