Yair Rodriguez vs. Chan Sung Jung was already a Fight of the Year candidate. Then, with one second left on the clock, it became a Knockout of the Year candidate too.

At the time of Rodriguez’s knockout, Jung was up on two of the three judges’ scorecards and was literally one second away from winning the fight.
