    Now this is a knockout! Cody Garbrandt defeats Raphael Assuncao with buzzer-beater hook in UFC 250

    Now this is a knockout blow! Cody Garbrandt defeats Raphael Assuncao with stunning buzzer-beater hook in UFC 250 as Conor McGregor rocks the sport by announcing his retirement

    • He unleashed a devastating right hook just before the second round buzzer 
    • The American ended a three-fight losing streak to claim his first win since 2016 
    • UFC was rocked on Sunday by Conor McGregor announcing his early retirement

    Cody Garbrandt produced a sensational knockout to defeat Raphael Assuncao at UFC 250 on Saturday night.

    With some fans calling it the knockout of the year, the American invited the Brazilian to come after him before landing a devastating right hook just before the buzzer in the second round.

    Referee Keith Peterson had no choice but to call the fight as Assuncao lay motionless on the ground. The power of Garbrandt’s punch was so great that his opponent was still struggling to stand some time after the event.

    It was a much needed victory for the former bantamweight champion who ended a three-fight losing streak.

    And the 28-year-old claimed his first win since 2016 in style with on-lookers labelling his blow as the ‘knockout of the year’.

    One fan wrote on Twitter: ‘My favourite fighter W the greatest KO I’ve ever witnessed lets goooooo!! KO of the year, Cody Garbrandt is a baaaaad man’.

    Another added: ‘This is the Knockout of the year by Cody Garbrandt tonight at UFC 250 with KO at the Buzzer #UFC250 #CodyGarbrandt’.  

    American sports journalist Stephen A. Smith tweeted: ‘Good lord. What a Knockout at the Buzzer by @Cody_Nolove over @Raphael Assuncao. Garbrandt looked so much faster all night, but I didn’t expect this. Great job by him!’

    ESPN’s Okamoto welcomed back the fighter and tweeted: ‘One of the most gangster KO’s we’ve seen in a minute!!! Hands down, back against the wall. Slip and rippppppp, Assuncao out COLD. Welcome back Cody Garbrandt.’

    Garbrandt’s emphatic victory is not the only talking point in the sport this weekend with Conor McGregor announcing his retirement from MMA on Sunday morning.

    The Irishman stunned fans by revealing he was hanging up his gloves at the age of 31, writing on Twitter: ‘Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been! 

    ‘Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World title wins! Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you! Whatever you desire it’s yours.’ 

    This is the third time ‘The Notorious One’ has claimed his career is done. McGregor retired last March only to fight again less than 12 months later.

    He was expected to be back in action later this year with Anderson Silva, Jorge Masvidal and arch-rival Khabib Nurmagomedov all touted as possible opponents.
