Round 1: John Sharp is the referee in charge of the action. Both fighters open orthodox. Shogun scores two leg kicks early and stuffs an early takedown attempt. And seemingly out of nowhere, Shogun drills Te Huna with a monster left that absolutely cripples him. He goes flailing to the mat as if he just died. Unbelievable knockout.
