@UFCFightPass, Twitter

There’s successful title defenses and then there’s what Steve Walker did at Lion Fight 64.

The Muay Thai promotion’s reigning super cruiserweight champion scored a spectacular first-round knockout in Friday’s main event, unleashing a tornado kick that left Brian Collette completely dazed.

Collette has his gloves up, but Walker’s high-flying strike breaks through and drops Collette against the ropes. The official time of the stoppage was 2:11 into round one.

Walker’s nickname is “Put Em To Sleep” and if anyone is wondering where that comes from, there’s an emphatic answer.
