The streaking Thiago Santos recorded yet another sensational knockout finish earlier tonight (Sat., Oct. 28, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 119 live on FOX Sports 1 from inside Ginasio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil, when he made quick work of Swedish striker Jack Hermansson.
Santos came out patient as Hermansson dictated the pace of the action early. But after landing a few hard shots Santos knew he could hurt “The Joker” at will. With just moments left in the first round, Santos caught Hermansson off guard, blasted him with a barrage of punches, and forced the Swedish middleweight to curl up and fall to the canvas. The referee jumped in soon after.

With this performance, Santos extends his current 185-pound win streak to three. He may never climb the middleweight ladder high enough to contend for a title, but Santos has turned into one of the division’s most entertaining finishers. This is just another knockout to add to his UFC highlight reel.
