Makhmud Muradov goes upstairs, lays out Trevor Smith at UFC on ESPN 7

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Makhmud Muradov spent more than 10 minutes beating Trevor Smith’s body before going upstairs to devastating effect.

The Uzbekistan native used his right hand to lay out Smith with a single punch at the 4:09 mark of the third and final round, picking up a highlight-reel win in his second octagon bout.

Check out the finish here at UFC on ESPN 7, which took place Saturday at Capital One Arena and streamed live on ESPN+.

Muradov has won 13 straight fights including his octagon appearances and hasn’t lost since December 2016. Smith, a 12-fight UFC veteran, has dropped three straight bouts.
