OHHH MYYYY GOOOOODDDD!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
That's one hell of a finish by Chris Barnett to kick off the night - I don't know if it'll even be topped! It may be the friggin KO of the year!
From the walkout....
....to the fight itself....
….to the celebration….
I love the whole package we're gettin with "Huggy Bear" Chris Barnett. I'm all in on him. Looks like Big Ev is too….
Unfortunately, Gian Villante - who announced this would be his retirement fight earlier this week - was on the receiving end of the finish, getting finished in his home state. Still, Barnett had the crowd give it up for him after the fight, which was a super classy move. Gian has always been super kind to me/Barstool and it's been a pleasure watching and covering his career. Best wishes to him in retirement!
