VIDEO: Paul Felder's spinning backfist knocks out Danny Castillo

New, comments

UFC lightweight Paul Felder made the best of an unexpected opportunity, brutally starching veteran Danny Castillo with a second-round spinning backfist knockout on the preliminary card of UFC 182.

A 29-year-old who defeated Jason Saggo via split decision in his UFC debut, Felder (10-0) was supposed to fight Johnny Case for his sophomore effort at UFC Fight Night 59, but instead jumped at the chance to meet Castillo two weeks earlier after Castillo's original opponent, Rustam Khabilov, dropped out due to visa issues. And the finish proved to be a memorable one. Catch it above.
