‘How did he come back with his face falling off?’: Pros react to Gregory Rodrigues’ insane cut, comeback win at UFC Vegas 60


Just when it seemed like Gregory Rodrigues was in serious trouble, the man known as “RoboCop” pulled off a wild second-round stoppage win.

Rodrigues faced knockout artist Chidi Njokuani in the co-main event of Saturday’s UFC Vegas 60. Njokuani began by pounding Rodrigues in the center with a straight knee. This opened up a severe cut that left Rodrigues covered in crimson throughout the entire round. Njokuani suffered a similar injury in round one. Both fighters managed to make it through round two.

From there, Rodrigues got the fight to the mat and opened up with vicious ground-and-pound before referee Mark Smith had seen enough at 1:27 of the second stanza.

With the victory, Rodrigues improved to 4-1 in the UFC and earned his second consecutive finish.

Of course, a performance like that gets the attention of Rodrigues’ fellow fighters. After the chaos of the co-main event at middleweight, here’s their reaction.
