MMA Fighter Stuns Foe with Kick to Head and Then Knocks Him Out with Huge Punch

Brian Oswald@@briancoswaldMMA Editor January 28, 2017

Hard Knocks 53 went down Friday night from Calgary, Canada.

On a fight card that featured several knockouts and submissions, the co-main event between Dustin Joynson and Christiano Catala stole the show.

In the second round, Joynson uncorked a kick to the head of Catala that left his victim stunned and wobbling back and forth. Catala appeared frozen in time for a moment.

If gave Joynson the perfect opportunity he needed to finish him. He unloaded a big right hand that buckled Catala and sent him crashing to the canvas. Joysnon improved to 2-0 while Catala dropped to 1-4.
