Nigerian fighter Kennedy Nzechukwu landed an insane Knock Out of Carlos Ulberg at UFC 259 on Saturday night.
Ulberg battered Nzechukwu with a relentless series of punches, targeting both the head and body and even connecting with a huge head kick.
But Nzechukwu refused to go away and as he absorbed the punishment, he was also watching Ulberg punch himself out after exerting so much energy going for the finish.
That led to a slugfest in the second round and Nzechukwu made Ulberg paid for his lacking defense after throwing a flurry of shots capped off by a devastating right hook that put the City Kickboxing light heavyweight down in a heap on the canvas. Nzechukwu followed with a few more shots as the referee rushed into stop the fight with the end coming at 3:19 into the second round.
