Vera ended the UFC San Diego matchup with an absolutely devastating kick to Cruz’s face. The kick was so powerful that the sound of it will make your skin crawl.

Knockouts are part of the business in MMA, but that kick was on a different level. There are light switches and timers.

Light switches put you down immediately and timers take some time. Would we all like to guess which one Vera’s kick was?

It was clearly a light switch. As soon as that kick landed, it was game over for Cruz. He night was done, and that’s putting it lightly.

Seriously, the sound of that kick was unbelievable. Listening to it is borderline uncomfortable.
