UFC Fight Island 5 results & video: Barboza outstrikes Amirkhani, Du Plessis wins debut by TKO


The UFC Fight Island 5 main card is in progress, and the co-main event just witnessed the company’s #14 ranked featherweight, Edson Barboza , out-strike Makwan Amirkhani for the bulk of 15-minutes.


The first-two rounds saw a ton of volume being thrown on the feet on both sides, with Tybura utilizing his head movement and footwork to make his opponent miss and tire out.


Making good on his UFC debut, Dricus du Plessis overcame a slow start to knockout Markus Perez in the first-round.


The first finish on the main card came just 95-seconds into the fight when Tom Aspinall ground and pounded Alan Baudot from the full mount.


Makwan Amirkhani by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 29-28): Featherweight Barboza took the center of the cage and threw a lot of feints.


Just when it looked as if Du Plessis was in for a long night, he uncorked a blazing counter left hand that dropped Perez.
