repost via @danhardymma Watch this beautiful finish in the @victoryfights main event. @a_amarasinghe 🐍 defending his bantamweight title against a very tough opponent. It was back and forth for a couple of minutes, until the right hand found its home… again, and again. The first of many victories for the #FRCWarriors 🐊 (apologies for the bad language… I get rather invested 😉) #FullReptile #RightHandsAllDay #LikeACobra 🐍
