UFC Fight Night 232 video: Joanderson Brito ninja chokes Jonathan Pearce, takes off shorts in celebration

Featherweight finisher Joanderson Brito was getting a little frustrated with his opponent’s complaints to the ref, but found a way to silence everything in the second round.

In the final preliminary bout of UFC Fight Night 232, Brito (16-3-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) took on Jonathan Pearce (14-5 MMA, 5-2 UFC). It was a close fight with a steady back-and-forth flow. Pearce vocalized a few complaints to the referee during the action though, which prompted Brito to loudly mock him during grappling exchanges against the cage.

However, Brito slapped on a sneaky ninja choke as they battled for position against the fence, and Pearce couldn’t escape. The tap came at 3:43 of Round 2, recording Brito’s fourth consecutive finish. When the referee stopped the fight, Brito popped up off the canvas, took off his fight shorts, and threw his mouthpiece in celebration.

Check out the finish and celebration below (via X):

With the win, Brito extended his current winning streak to four. Each fight during his run has ended before the third round; he finished Andre Fili, Lucas Alexander and Westin Wilson in the first round, and now Pearce in Round 2. Brito dropped a unanimous decision in his debut after an appearance on Dana White’s Contender Series, but has since looked like a real future contender.
