Barberena relies so much on his ability to absorb strikes. It looked like it was finally one big knee* too many. Great fight.

Amazing. Props to BanBam. I was literally just wondering how the **** the judges were gonna score that. 

If nothing else Barberana just won a ton of new fans, including myself.

FOTY so far, Luque is a ******* unstoppable machine. Barberena has a HUGE chin, but that knee finally cracked it.

in retrospect, what a terrible matchmaking Northcutt-Barberena was when they were trying to build up Sage stock, lol.

@Vazio back then it was unknown how much of a ringzombie Barbarena is. It was meant to be a feeding session.
