Sho Patrick Usami wasn’t getting paid by the hour for his fight at Rizin 40 from Japan.
It took Usami less than one minute to deliver an absolutely brutal one-punch knockout that twisted his opponent BeyNoah around and sent him crashing face first to the canvas.
The punch that ended the fight was actually just a short left hook from Usami that blasted BeyNoah and left him unconscious immediately. Usami then celebrated his knockout as part of the early Rizin 40 card, which aired on FITE TV PPV.
BeyNoah actually remained motionless on the canvas for several moments after the knockout before eventually getting back on a stool as medical personnel tended to him.
It was an impressive showing from Usami, who was expected to have a grappling advantage in the fight but ultimately it was his finishing power on the feet that got him the win.
