Yoshihiro Akiyama KOs Denis Kang at HEROs (Video)

Yoshihiro Akiyama dropped Denis Kang — a top middleweight mixed martial artist — with a crushing uppercut at "HERO'S Korea 2007" over the weekend.

Kang is often discussed here at and elsewhere as being a mandatory addition to the not-so-stacked UFC 185-pound division. In fact, the American Top Team standout recently opted to fight in HERO's rather than inside the Octagon.

Not saying this recent loss changes anything — he's still a fantastic fighter. Just want to pass along some sweet footage of the stoppage.
