PFL 8 video: Renan Ferreira starches Stuart Austin in 31 seconds

New, 3 comments

PFL heavyweight Renan Ferreira needed just 31 seconds to knock out Stuart Austin in their preliminary-card meeting at PFL 8.

The two of a one-two straight down the pipe connected with Austin’s chin and sent him crashing backward, his head bouncing off the canvas. Ferreira showed restraint by not throwing a follow-up shot as referee Keith Peterson rushed to intervene in the final prelim before main card fights at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

Check out the finish below.

Ferreira continues to shine after a controversial no-contest against Fabricio Werdum in his first PFL appearance in the Season 3 opener. After his knockout win was overturned due to a missed tap, he vented his frustration at his promoter for not booking an immediate rematch.

Ferreira was scheduled to face Austin in June, but the bout was cancelled, and he went on to outpoint Carl Seumanutafa. He has now won three straight, but none more emphatic than his performance in the playoff event.
