Bojan Velickovic might have been staring a defeat in the face Sunday. Good thing for him he still had a little more in the tank late.
“Serbian Steel” landed a right hand to the temple of Nico Musoke that put Musoke on wobbly legs and Velickovic pounced for the finish at 4:37 of the third round at UFC Fight Night 109 in Stockholm. It was the second such come-from-behind finish in the third round after Damir Hadzovic did it to Marcin Held.

One judge had Velickovic down two rounds heading into the third. The other two had it 19-19. The KO certainly sealed the deal.
Velickovic (15-4-1) snapped a two-fight winless streak with the victory. The 28-year-old Elevation Fight Team product last won in April 2016, a unanimous decision over Alessio Di Chirico. Musoke (13-5, 1 NC), a Sweden native, has lost two straight and three of his last four.
