Sadykhov, a Serra-Longo standout, took on Ahmad Hassanzada in the opening bout at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. After a fast start that saw him bust open Hassanzada with some nasty ground and pound, Sadykhov had plenty of momentum and energy heading into the third round where he delivered a ferocious combination that left Hassanzada unconscious.
Check out the video of the impressive finish below:
Sadykhov has now finished his last four opponents and has won seven straight overall after losing his pro debut in November 2018. The 28-year-old entered the DWCS opportunity after a trio of stoppage wins for Fury FC.
Hassanzada’s four-fight win streak came to an end, which included a victory in LFA in his prior outing at LFA 124 in February.
