UFC: Re-Watch Yair Rodriguez's Jumping Shin-to-Chin KO on Andre Fili

Brian OswaldMMA Editor January 9, 2017

The first UFC fight card of the year goes down this Sunday, from Phoenix, Arizona. 

The main event features upstart Yair Rodriguez vs. B.J. Penn.  Young lion vs. old lion.  24-year-old vs. 38-year-old. Rodriguez has won all five of his UFC fights and is 8-1 overall in professional MMA. Penn, one of the legends of the sport,  is 1-5-1 in his last 7 outings. 

This has disaster written all over it for Penn. 

Especially when Rodriguez can pull off jaw-dropping moves like the one featured in the video above. Unless the Hawaiian can summon the stuff that made him a champion so many years ago, it could be an early night for 'The Prodigy.'
