A 29-year-old called Tom Breese floored his UFC opponent KB Bhullar with a jab, then hit his skull with hammer fists until the referee waved the bout off for good.
It was a much-needed win for the British athlete as Breese rebounded from a first-round knockout loss to Brendan Allen during the UFC's previous Fight Island residency in July, to score an opening round finish of his own on Saturday at UFC Fight Island 5.
At the behind-closed-doors Flash Forum on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, Breese showed that he remains a "dangerous prospect" in the middleweight division according to the UFC.
Traditionally, a jab is a distance-measuring weapon which precedes more powerful blows like an overhand or hook with the non-jabbing fist.
It is rare in the combative sports, boxing included, to knock an opponent down with a jab.
For Breese to do so, after only 100 seconds of fighting action, is indicative of a striking accuracy, efficiency, and power not often seen in mixed martial arts.
Rather than marvel at his handiwork, he pounced on KB Bhullar and just wailed fists onto his downed opponent until the referee awarded the win.
