Damn that guy woke up! And I say “that guy” because I don’t want to type his last name #UFCVegas65

Cutelaba had, what, 10-15 more seconds to survive that than Izzy last week? He was out long before it was stopped. Great win for Kennedy.

Awesome fight IQ by Kennedy Nzechukwu not to allow the foul timeout to take place. He knew it’d give Ion Cutelaba time to regroup. Smart. #UFCVegas65
