There are knockouts in martial arts, and then there’s the face destruction that Russian Beybulat Isaev handed out on his poor opponent, Mihajlo Kecojevic, at the One Championship 127: Unbreakable II held in Singapore.
Isaev caught Kecojevic 82-seconds into the first round, giving him the fastest knockout in ONE Super Series light heavyweight history, according to MMA Junkie. That’s all the information you need here. Watch Kecojevic’s face explode. It’s a piece of art.

Here’s how ONE Championship described the action:
“The Serbian’s eyes rolled where he stood, and he folded onto himself like a puppet whose strings had suddenly been snipped. As Kecojevic’s body settled on the canvas, the referee jumped in and called off the bout at the 1:22 mark of the opening round.”
That’s actually some incredible prose. Couldn’t have written it any better.
