Highlights! James Moontasri cripples Anton Zafir with a spinning back kick on UFC 193 'Prelims'

Boom! The "Moonwalker" lands with a vengeance in Melbourne.

The tone has been set for what is sure to be a thoroughly entertaining UFC 193 pay-per-view (PPV) main card inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia tonight (Sat., Nov. 14, 2015) as the Fight Pass "Prelims" have gotten underway in a hurry.

Welterweight prospects James Moontasri and Anton Zafir threw down in the second fight of the night and it was electric. The Australian Zafir was successful early and landed a good overhand right, before taking the fight down to the mat twice, where he landed a few short shots.

With around 1:15 left in the first frame, the pair stood up, which is when Moontasri turned Zafir's lights off -- breaking what appeared to be a rib of the latter's in the process -- via a vicious spinning back kick-fist combination.
