Joshua Culibao shook off a truly gruesome groin blow to submit featherweight forward Melsik Baghdasaryan earlier tonight (Saturday Feb 11, 2023) at UFC 284 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside RAC Arena in Perth, Australia.
Baghdasaryan was in control early on as he found his range for the bloody Culibao. Towards the end of the first round, Baghdasaryan landed a spinning kick and his heel caught Culibao right in the family jewels. Culibao took a while to recover from one of the worst nut shots we’ve seen in a while.
After telling his corner that he was struggling to breathe between rounds, Culibao knocked out Baghdasaryan with a stiff jab and launched into the rear choke finish. Baghdasaryan just had to tap in and give Culibao a memorable home moment.
