UFC may be running their first cards of 2021 here on Fight Island, but talkSPORT has already witnessed some serious knockouts.
Winner of the 2020 KO of the year, Joaquin Buckley, was on the receiving end of a high kick KO last Saturday and that card featured three first-round KOs, but Ike Villanueva might have just topped them on Wednesday.
Ike Villanueva laid down a marker for KO of the year
The Texas-born light heavyweight went hammer and tong with Brazilian Vinicius Moreira and it was clear from the first round this wasn’t a fight destined to go the distance.
Villanueva had 13 knockout wins in his career prior to Wednesday and all of them came in the first round.
He didn’t get the first round KO, but he certainly did in the second. Take a look at this:

The shot was so nasty that it sent the Brazilian spinning! He did a full 360 degree turn before landing on the mat.
Following the decision, Moreira walked past us at the media table and was seen sobbing to his team, clearly upset at what had transpired.
Life in UFC hadn’t started the way Villanueva would have hoped. A loss on his debut and then a doctor stoppage because of a cut on his second outing left Villanueva wondering if his job was on the line with another loss.
 
Villanueva’s right hand was far to much for Moreira
Instead, he secured a huge knockout and may well secure a bonus by the time this card is over.
Elsewhere on UFC’s Wednesday card, it was a mixed night for the Brits as Mason Jones lost his debut and his unbeaten record, Tom Breese lost via submission, but Lerone Murphy remained unbeaten with a unanimous decision.
Ike Villanueva got his first win in his UFC career
