Both men looked to have been rocked, but it was Munhoz who pulled off the finish first.

The defeat marks Garbrandt’s third consecutive loss by knockout. He began his mixed martial arts (MMA) career undefeated, which included a 135-pound title win, before going on the losing skid.

He ended things by thanking fans and congratulating Munhoz on the victory:

“Love you guys. Congrats to
