Knockout! Watch Mario Bautista score flying knee finish over Miles Johns at UFC 247

Rising bantamweight youngster Mario Bautista scored the biggest win of his career earlier tonight (Sat., Feb. 8, 2020) at UFC 247 from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, as he finished previously undefeated contender Miles Johns via second-round TKO (flying knee and punches).

After a back-and-forth first round that featured offense, and defense, from both fighters, Bautista took over in the second. He was able to gauge his distance much better and scored a perfectly-timed flying knee that buckled Johns. Bautista jumped on top for a barrage of punches before the fight was stopped.

With this performance, Bautista scores the biggest win of his professional career and locks down his second-straight win inside of the Octagon. The 26-year-old continues to show improvement each and every time he steps inside of the cage and just took out one of the more promising young names at 135 pounds.
