The UFC 228 card was home to many finishes. However, Geoff Neal tops that list with this head kick…
Of all the fights on the Dallas card, last Saturday. Neal vs. Camacho definitely ended in one of the most brutal knockouts of the night. On par with the clean knockout in Andrade vs. Kowalkiewicz and easily matching up with the Alhassan vs. Price left hook KO.
Camacho was on track to making history at the start of his UFC career with a fourth consecutive Fight of the Night bonus. Neal (a Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series contract winner) whisked that away from him with a Knockout of the Year contender in the second round.

From start to finish the fight seemed in Neal’s favour. Scoring constantly throughout the first landing left hand after left hand. Also hurting and dropping Camacho at the end of the first, which in turn would’ve given him the confidence in the second to resume doing what he was doing.
This constant landing of shots caused Camacho to almost lose his cool and ditch the gameplan. In the second Camacho came out more aggressive like he was desperately trying to win some points back. You can see how well that worked out for him.
This isn’t Neal’s first knockout victory either, winning his UFC contract with a first round KO over Chase Waldon back in July of 2017. UFC 228 was his second UFC fight winning his first by submission against Brian Camozzi in the first. The hype train for Neal is certainly rolling.
Possibilities on the Horizon
Neal is now currently 10-2 in Mixed Martial Arts and on a 4 fight win streak. This knockout welcomed him to the top contender scene in his division at Welterweight. He also mentioned the 50 thousand bonus for his knockout. we’d give it to him…
