Fight fans have been left to fend for themselves this weekend with a limited combat schedule. Luckily, Titan FC 70 unfolded Friday night and produced one of the best spinning kick knockouts of the year thus far.
Titan FC 70 aired live on UFC Fight Pass from inside the Intercontinental Hotel in Miami, Fla., and featured a co-main event pairing between flyweights Roy Echeverria and Earnest Walls. It was a rematch from just five months ago after Echeverria defeated Walls via first-round submission at Titan FC 67 back in February. This time around, Walls was stepping up on 48 hours’ notice to fill in for Andrew Richardson.
After 90 seconds of action it was Echeverria who launched a wicked spinning heel kick. The attack landed flush on Walls’ head and forced him to wobble backwards and fall to the canvas. Echeverria rushed in for an insurance shot before referee Larry Folsom stepped in for the stoppage.

While this finish is impressive and the win pushes Echeverria’s overall professional MMA record to 5-0 it should be noted that Walls was just 2-17 entering this fight. The defeat now puts him on a 15-fight losing streak with just one of those losses coming via decision.
