UFC's top fighters assembled for UFC 300 and the top brass couldn't hold back their reactions to the stunning finish between Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway's BMF title bout. Holloway challenged Gaethje after moving up to the lightweight division for only the second time in his career.
The fight was dubbed as the 'People's Main Event', with Alex Pereria squaring off against Jamahal Hill in the marquee fight of the night. Nonetheless, Gaethje and Holloway came together to produce a memorable contest that almost went the entire distance.
The BMF title holder did have his moments during the match, but it was Holloway who dominated the contest from the get-go, putting in an insane performance. Towards the end of the fifth round, the challenger was able to execute a spinning kick that broke the title holder's nose.
Holloway seemingly was inching closer towards a victory from the judges' decision however, the former featherweight kingpin challenged Justin Gaethje to stand with him in the centre of the octagon. The pair unleashed blows at each other after five rounds of gruelling battle, however, Holloway was able to go the distance with a surreal knockout blow that left the BMF title holder on the mat with just one second remaining on the clock.
While the stunning conclusion to the match not only saw fans lose their minds completely, the audience at the venue, and even fellow UFC fighters couldn't hold back their emotions.
UFC's official handle shared a video of Israel Adesanya, Sean O'Malley, Dricus du Plessis, and Tom Aspinall who were all present at the cage side. All the fighters were left stunned as their jaws dropped in astonishment and in sheer disbelief.
Watch:
