Ciro Rodrigues lands brutal overhand elbow KO at ACB 86

Former Jungle Fight champion Ciro Rodrigues likely scored the most spectacular knockout of the night at ACB 86 after being drafted in to fight promotional mainstay and welterweight contender, Beslan Isaev, on short notice.

Isaev was scheduled to fight for the title on the night, but the fight was called off due to injury to champion, Mukhamed Berkhamov.

Rodriguez blasted Isaev with an overhand elbow near the beginning of the second round that stopped the fight. It remains to be seen if Isaev will be given the next shot at the welterweight title after stepping onto the unorthodox shot.
