The Co-Main event of the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Swedish debut saw the decorated American Captain in Stann pitted against the talented Italian boxer in Sakara.
Sakara looked to be holding his own in a whirlwind of an exchange early in the 1st Round. It didn’t take long for Stann to utilize a mini muay thai clinic on the face of Sakara, dropping him to the ground where he would soon end both fighters time on the clock. As you can see by the GIF provided via – mmamania/@smoogymma – Stann knocks out Sakara with a left hand of doom in his (Sakara’s) open guard. This is one of those things that you do not. I repeat do not see often. Stann then landed another left (not for good measure, Stann backed off and basically called his own fight like a gentleman) on the face of his opponent – who would wake up a second after in a very defensive manner.
