Aleksandar Ilic head kick sleeps Olympian Damian Janikowski at KSW 47

Coming off his first career loss to Michal Materla, Janikowski underlined his dominance in the wrestling exchanges. The Olympic bronze medalist wowed the partisan crowd with a series of suplexes in the opening round before controlling the second round with ease from top position.
