There are highlight reel KOs and then there are soul-stealing, devastating, Mortal Kombat-fatality level KOs. Diego Nunes‘ victory at Superior Challenge 11 over famed Scandinavian fighter Joachim Hansen is the latter.
Check it out (via Grabaka Hitman):
Few knockouts deserve the “BAW GAWD, HE KILLED HIM!” more than this one. Hansen hasn’t been doing great lately. He’s 1-3 over the last four years and hasn’t beaten a significant opponent since a TKO win over Shinya Aoki in 2008. To put that into its proper historic context, the fight took place in DREAM. That’s how long it’s been since Hansen was a factor in the global top-echelon lightweight discussion. His record now stands at 23-13-1.
With the knockout, Nunes breaks a 3-fight losing streak, bringing his record to 19-6.
Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to barter for some Bloody Elbow merch.
