UFC Sacramento video: Jonathan Martinez knocks out Pingyuan Liu with violent knee

Heading into UFC Sacramento, Jonathan Martinez was looking to pick up his second straight win inside the Octagon.

Standing opposite him was Pingyuan Liu, a Team Alpha Male product riding a nine-fight win streak, which included a pair of decisions to kick off his UFC career.

While the two fought a fairly competitive first two rounds, Martinez ended the bout in devastating fashion as he planted a crippling knee to he jaw of Liu late into the final frame, separating him from his senses.

This win not only extended his win streak to two straight but marked sixth career (T)KO, and first since 2014, while pushing his career record to 11-2. Liu, on the other hand, falls to 13-6 after suffering his second career (T)KO loss.
