UFC 246: Bizarre Tap Out as Ode Osbourne Submits to Brian Kelleher

Brian Kelleher and Ode Osbourne

Brian Kelleher defeated Ode Osbourne via submission (guillotine choke) at 2:49 of round one in the UFC 246 on Saturday.

What seemed unique in the defeat was the way Osbourne tapped out. Instead of using his hands, Osbourne tapped with his foot and bailed out of the fight.

The rarely seen style of tap out grabbed the attention of fans all over the world. People on Twitter had different views on the tap out.

A debut not gone well for Ode Osbourne

Kelleher was coming into the fight after a while. He had won only one of his last three fights- all of which took place in 2018. He had registered a victory against Renan Barao early in 2018 but later conceded defeats to John Lineker and Mentel Jackson.

Osbourne, meanwhile, was making his UFC debut after an 8-2 record at the Dana White’s Contender Series last July. He came in with a crouch and started on the front foot with a leaping strike. Although Kelleher was caught a little off guard at the start, he managed to stay calm and looked for openings.
