Knockout! Watch Leonardo Santos demolish Stevie Ray with one punch at UFC Stockholm

The return of Brazilian finisher Leonardo Santos lasted just over two minutes earlier today (Sat., June 1, 2019) at UFC on ESPN+ 11 live on ESPN+ from inside Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, when he flattened Stevie Ray with one single punch for a first-round knockout finish.

Despite being out of competition for nearly three years, Santos looked extremely comfortable in his return to the cage. The 39-year-old may have had to eat a few shots to find his timing but everything fell into place during an exchange just after the two-minute mark. Ray rushed in for a combination, Santos avoided the punches, and landed a beautiful counter right hand falling back that crumbled Ray to the canvas.

With this performance, Santos returns to action in devastating fashion. The streaking Brazilian now commands a 6-0-1 UFC record and remains undefeated in his professional career since May of 2009. That’s an incredible streak and one that should propel Santos into a top 10 matchup his next time out.
