EFC 99 got a jolt when David Mambo slammed his way to a knockout on the prelims of Thursday’s event in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Mambo evoked Quinton Jackson’s classic slam of Ricardo Arona by countering a triangle attempt from Katiso Matime by slamming him to the canvas. A few hammerfists were academic as Matime had already been knocked out.
Check out a video of the stoppage above.
Mambo moves to 1-0 with the highlight-reel finish in his professional debut after going 7-1-1 as an amateur, while Matime dropped to 0-3 as a pro after a 6-19 amateur ledger.
EFC 99 took place Thursday at EFC Performance Institute and aired via the promotion’s online pay-per-view.
