After brutalizing his leg in the second round, Alessandro Costa kicks off UFC 301 with a nasty TKO victory over Kevin Borjas.

The first round was a close affair, with both men finding success with their boxing on the feet. Costa was able to drop Borjas at the end of the round with a lead hook but couldn't finish the job. However, in the second round, he timed a perfect leg kick on Borjas's calf and was able to follow up with ground strikes to close the show.
