Thunderous one-punch KO the highlight of UFC Zagreb so far

Mairbek Taisumov is making his presence felt in the lightweight division.

MAIRBEK TAISUMOV MADE light work of Damir Hadzovic at UFC Fight Night 86 in Zagreb this afternoon.

The Russian connected with a thunderous uppercut in the first round to score his fourth straight stoppage win and cement his claim for a shot at one of the lightweight division’s top 10.

“Joe Silva, UFC, how many knockouts, TKOs to get in the top 10?” he asked afterwards.

This is one way to catch the bosses’ eye anyway.
