Alex Nicholson showed Jake Heun why he’s known for his knockout power.

The ex-UFC heavyweight picked up career KO number 11 on Thursday at the PFL’s first show of their inaugural season, which took place at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Facing Jake Heun, Nicholson loaded up a flying knee that connected clean with Heun to end the fight 58 seconds into round two.

Nicholson is now 5-1 with all of his wins coming by way of strikes since parting ways with the UFC in May 2017.
