UFC on ESPN+ 39 video: Miles Johns’ uppercut leads to nasty knockout visual

Miles Johns’ first UFC finish was a good one.

Johns (1-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC), a bantamweight prospect out of Fortis MMA, scored a brutal one-punch knockout of Kevin Natividad (9-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at UFC on ESPN+ 39 on Saturday.

After controlling the fight for nearly 13 minutes, Johns launched a slick inside uppercut that caught Natividad clean on the chin and immediately put the lights out. The visual was gruesome. Natividad launched backward off his leg as he was falling.

Check out the highlight of the finish below (via Twitter):

The knockout marked the first time since July 2016 that Johns had finished a fight with strikes, and just the second time Natividad has been beaten and finished.

It was a strong way to start UFC on ESPN+ 39, which took place at UFC Apex in Las Vegas and streamed on ESPN+.
