UFC 201 unfolded tonight (Sat., July 30, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., featuring the highly-anticipated Welterweight clash between current champion Robbie Lawler and teammate Tyron Woodley. But before the headlining bout went down, UFC 201’s “Prelims” undercard offered a plethora of entertaining action.
In the marquee “Prelims” undercard bout, mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran Ed Herman attempted to thwart former Heavyweight prospect Nikita Krylov and his four-fight Light Heavyweight win streak. After escaping a first round from hell, Herman ran into even more trouble in the second as Krylov blasted him with punches on the feet before launching a devastating head kick that sent “Short Fuse” into another dimension.
The scintillating finish can be seen below (courtesy of UFC on FOX):
TIMBERRRRRR! @KrylovUFC puts Ed Herman to sleep with a massive headkick knockout! #UFC201

At just 24 years of age, Krylov looks like an absolute terror at 205 pounds. He has finished five fights in a row and looks better every time he steps inside of the Octagon. A high-profile top 10 opponent is the only move that makes sense for the Ukrainian heading into 2017.
