BOSTON — Randy Costa grilled some Salmon at TD Garden on Friday night.
The Taunton, Mass. native knocked out Boston Salmon at UFC Fight Night Boston just 2:15 into the first round to win his first career UFC fight.
The two fighters exchanged violent blows from the get-go until Costa connected with a series of right-hand punches that knocked Salmon to the ground. He then followed it up with a couple of uppercuts, which forced fight official Herb Dean to call the fight.
It was an emotional win for Costa, who carried his late friend Devin Carrier’s photo into the octagon and displayed it while getting his hand raised following the win.
With the victory, Costa improved to 1-1 in the UFC and 5-1 as a professional.
