There’s no disputing the ferocity of David Onama’s punches.

Saturday’s UFC Jacksonville witnessed Onama (11-2) bringing Gabriel Santos (10-2) to the mat with a decisive uppercut knockout, silencing the resilient Brazilian fighter. All of Onama’s UFC victories have come via KO/TKO or submission.

Below, you can see the highlights of his latest triumph.

Santos presented quite a challenge for Onama in the opening bout, harnessing his grappling prowess to stifle Onama’s dynamic striking style. Despite Santos seemingly having the upper hand with his ground attacks, Onama remained undeterred and played a robust defensive game.

However, the second round witnessed a paradigm shift. Onama established his rhythm and began to dominate the standup fight. With a series of precise punches, Onama set the stage for his finishing move: a lethal right uppercut, trailed by two additional strikes, sending Santos tumbling to the canvas. A couple of ensuing hammerfists finalized Onama’s victory at the 4:13 mark of Round 2.

Following his win, Onama replicated Israel Adesanya’s iconic “bow and arrow” celebration from UFC 287. This marks his third win out of five appearances in the octagon, with Santos joining his list of finished opponents, alongside Garrett Armfield, and Gabriel Benitez.

Unfortunately for Santos, he now sits at 0-2 in the UFC, having previously lost to Lerone Murphy in a closely-contested split decision in his debut match.
