Want to make an impression as a developing MMA prospect? Obliterate your opponent like Issac Hardman (9-0) did at the co-promoted Australian Fighting Championship-Kunlun Fight event on Saturday in Melbourne.

Hardman defended his AFC lightweight championship against Rob Hill (14-10-1) in the co-main event.

The first round was tightly contested, but the second would not follow the same script. Hill attempted a low leg kick, and Hardman countered with a right hand that connected flush. Hill was out before he hit the canvas.

"Headsplitter" Hardman's stock is sure to rise following the KO. Promoters looking for exciting lightweight finishers will be taking a strong look at the 21-year-old prospect.

Start adding Hardman to your watch lists for 2018.
