The fight began with both competitors trying to find an early advantage. Barro hit a straight punch, before Ho countered with a head kick. Ho countered by landing a straight punch, before moving in on an overhand right attempt.

It was the second straight first-round KO win for Ho in 2022, with the other coming at LFA 124 in February. After an impressive amateur run that saw Ho go 7-0 with five finishes in a little under three years, the MMA Lab standout stopped Guilherme Crossi with a spinning backfist finish in his pro debut.
