Marc Diakiese needed just 30 seconds to put away Teemu Packalen at UFC London. You have to watch this knockout.
Lightweight prospect Marc Diakiese made it 3-for-3 in his UFC career, and this finish of Teemu Packalen at UFC Fight Night: Anderson vs. Manuwa will go down as one of the best one-punch knockouts in (at the very least) recent UFC history.
Diakiese was on the offensive right away, throwing a series of spellbinding kicks before uncorking a freakishly powerful right hand that put Packalen to sleep in an instant. A sensational 30-second destruction by Manchester’s Diakiese. You can watch the finish at the bottom of the page, and you definitely want to watch it.
Here’s Tim Burke’s play-by-play of the entire fight:
Round 1 – Diakiese with a low kick. He misses with a spinning head kick, but lands a spinning kick to the body. A right hook just knocked Packalen out! Stiffened him up and he went right down! His first punch of the fight! WOW!
