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.
