After three rounds of pure exchanges, kicks and body shots, the integrity of Shane burgos he finally gave in after a left from Barboza that made him retreat straight to defeat.
With this KO Barboza adds his second victory at 145 pounds after winning by unanimous decision to Makwan Amirkhani in the UFC Fight Island 5.
The former 155-pound contender controversially lost on his debut to Dan Ige. That fight was defined by split decision.
Burgos, number nine in the ranking, experiences his third loss as a professional.
