Randy Costa needed all of 41 seconds to put Journey Newson out cold with a head kick, earning an early impressive knockout victory.

After eleven months away (thanks to the coronavirus pandemic), New England’s Randy Costa got a chance to follow up his first win in the octagon at UFC Vegas 11 on Saturday. Facing off with Costa at bantamweight was Journey Newson, who was 0-1 with a no-contest thus far in his UFC career.

Of course, the no-contest was due to a dubious suspension for marijuana, which was otherwise a knockout win for Newson.

Randy Costa opened up the fight with a crafty little right hand that landed clean. Costa then feinted with a left hand then landed a clean head kick that put Newson out cold! A couple of unnecessary follow-up strikes later and that was it! What a knockout and what a win by Randy Costa.

Randy Costa continues to be an interesting prospect at 135 pounds. At only 26 years old he’s already 2-0 in the UFC. Coming out of Lauzon MMA, he has a great team behind him, and now he has another great knockout for the highlight reel. Great win by Randy Costa.

Official Result: Randy Costa def. Journey Newson by knockout (headkick), Round 1, 0:41
