Justin Gaethje knocked out Edson Barboza with a right hook in an exciting-but-short battle to win the UFC Philadelphia main event. After the fight, Gaethje questioned the UFC ranking system and made it known that he’s working towards a lightweight title shot.

In the co-main event, it took Jack Hermansson only 49 seconds to submit David Branch with a slick arm-in guillotine choke. After his victory, Hermansson claimed that he’ll become a UFC champion within the next year.
