UFC Fortaleza video: Johnny Walker nets 15-second KO via spinning backfist

The Johnny Walker hype train isn’t slowing down anytime soon.

After dancing his way to the Octagon, the 26-year-old light heavyweight prospect improved to 2-0 in the UFC with a lightning-fast finish of Justin Ledet on the UFC Fortaleza main card on Saturday.

Walker landed a kick to the body on Ledet, then followed with a hook kick and a spinning backfist that floored Ledet. The Brazilian fighter then narrowly missed on an illegal kick before ending the fight with ground-and-pound just 15 seconds into round one.

It was the second straight highlight-reel finish for Walker, who made an impressive UFC debut by knocking out Khalil Rountree this past November.

Watch the exciting finish above.
