‘Shin to chin’ – the most suitable way to describe this devastating flying roundhouse kick knockout in the UFC featherweight division at UFC 197. The culprit being highly rated striking sensation from Mexico, Yair Rodriguez.
The man, who Joe Rogan picked as his standout fighter to watch for 2016, has a lethal stand up game based on unorthodox, hard to detect kicks that rival Anthony Pettis in his prime, and it was one of these disguised kicks that caught out Andre Fili on Saturday night.
Keep an eye on this rising star as he looks to make a statement in the featherweight division in the coming months.
Enjoy this stunning knockout and say a prayer for his fallen opponent, Fili.
