Rising Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight prospect Yair Rodriguez attempted to cash in on his first main event bid earlier tonight (Sat., Aug. 6, 2016) opposite Alex Caceres at UFC Fight Night 92 live from Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. But before the marquee matchup unfolded, the rest of the card delivered on arrival.
In a clash between Heavyweights in search of their first win of 2016, veteran knockout artist Marcin Tybura met young grappling specialist Viktor Pesta. After a back-and-forth first round, Tybura strung a great combination together and followed it up with a crippling head kick knockout in Round 2. The Polish striker slept Pesta and walked off like he was Mark hunt.
The memorable knockout can be seen below (courtesy of UFC on FOX):
At just 30 years of age, Tybura is a serious name to keep an eye on in the UFC Heavyweight division. Considering the weight class is always looking for fresh contender blood, "Tybur" may be counted on for more highlight reel finishes like this one moving forward
