Johnny Walker continued his ridiculous light heavyweight takeover earlier tonight (Sat., Mar. 2, 2019) at UFC 235 from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, when he finished veteran contender Misha Cirkunov via TKO (flying knee and punches) just 36 seconds into the very first round.
Cirkunov tried to throw heavy hands early but Walker’s movement was simply too unpredictable to handle. Out of nowhere, Walker grabbed Cirkunov’s head and pulled him into a devastating flying knee. Cirkunov toppled over and Walker followed up with heavy hands for the vicious finish.

With this performance, Walker extends his UFC unbeaten streak to 3-0, having finished Justin Ledet via 15-second TKO only one month ago. The 26-year-old Brazilian is quickly turning into the most exciting fighter at 205 pounds and may only need one more highlight reel finish like this one to jump into title contention.
