Second Runner-Up

The one that went to the body came from Luiz Rocha and slammed into the liver of Nikita Yanchuk.

"The Pitbull" delivered a liver-smashing power-left-kick to the body, in full view of the supreme master of the liver-kick, Pit-side commentator Bas Rutten.

It was as instant as a body-kick KO could be.

Yanchuk went down immediately with a grimace that remained long after the fight was stopped.
