The UFC world was left in shock after a bizarre 'delayed KO' ended the blockbuster fight between Edson Barboza and Shane Burgos.

Earlier on the card, the UFC world has been left stunned after veteran Jacare Souza's arm was broken in a horrific injury in his loss to Andre Muniz.

But following up from that chaos, Barboza put in a dominant performance to knockout Shane Burgos in their featherweight bout after a 'never seen before' delayed finish.

After a gruelling battle, in the third round Barboza hit Burgos with two swift straight punches.

Burgos looked fine, but backed up, before he was suddenly sent crashing to the floor a few seconds later.

Barboza jumped on the opportunity before the fight was stopped due to TKO.

UFC veteran suffers broke arm

Souza, one of the great grappler's in MMA history, found himself in an awkward position against the much younger Muniz earlier on the card.

With a minute left in the first round, Muniz grabbed hold of Souza's arm.

Souza attempted to escape as Muniz was flipped upside down holding onto the Brazilian.

But in a sickening twist, Muniz applied the pressure and appeared to snap the arm of Souza.

"Oh my goodness," Joe Rogan said in commentary after realising the damage.

Fortunately, Souza appeared in good spirits after the bout, despite the broken arm.
