UFC Vegas 56 Tony Gravely flattens Johnny Munoz with lightning quick uppercut knockout

The UFC bantamweight division is one of the more stacked rosters in the promotion. Johnny Munoz and Tony Gravely may not be in the rankings yet, but a win at UFC Vegas 56 on Saturday at the UFC APEX may have been what they needed to move in the right direction.

Munoz (11-1) was 1-1 in his UFC stint, last pulling off a submission victory at UFC 265 over Jamey Simmons.

Gravely (22-7) was by far the more experienced fighter overall and in the UFC. 4-1 so far in his UFC stint and coming off a decision win at UFC 270 over Saimon Oliveira he looked to add another win over a young name to his resume. Gravely was also a former CES MMA bantamweight champion.

This one didn’t last long. Round one began with Tony Gravely looking for calf kicks, but he instead ended up eating a couple himself. Munoz popped the jab out repeatedly.

Gravely continued put the pressure on Munoz, and in a flurry landed a big right hand uppercut which dropped Munoz! From there, Gravely jumped on him to finish the fight and win via TKO.

The win makes it two in a row for Gravely, and is also his second finish inside the octagon.
