If Demetrious Johnson‘s blistering first round KO of Joseph Benavidez at UFC on FOX 9 didn’t dispel the ridiculous rumors that flyweights lack knockout power (see also: Lineker, J.), we give you Tim Flores, an ammy flyweight fighting out of western Mass who absolutely torched Dan Krall at Warrior Nation XFA VII. Although the fight went down back in November, footage has only recently been uploaded — clearly so the guys over at Warrior Nation XFA could whip up that epic intro tune and graphic.
Without giving too much away, I will say that Flores blisters Krall with an overhand right 18 seconds into the first round. OK, that might’ve sounded like I just gave it away, but the manner in which Krall crashes to the canvas is still a mystery, right? Falling tree? Lawn chair? I’m the worst.
The win improved Flores’ amatuer record to 2-1, and he has since collected a third round armbar victory over YuShun Tsou back in January. Major props to WesternMassMMA for passing this along, and be sure to head over there for all the latest updates on the Mass MMA scene.
