Check out this brutal spinning elbow knockout from South Africa


Mzwandile “Shakebone” Hlongwa lived up to his nickname on Saturday night during the EFC 75 event in South Africa, knocking out his opponent Torbjorn Madsen with a spinning hellbow just 1:10 into the first round.

Hlongwa is a rising star in EFC after a stint on the South African reality show The Fighter. While he didn’t manage to win the Ultimate Fighter style competition, he’s followed up on the popularity he gained through the show with three big knockout wins in a row, bringing his record to 3-1-1. Before becoming the third and biggest highlight on Hlongwa’s record, Torbjorn Madsen held a 5-0 record.
