Khalil Rountree Demolishes Gokhan Saki Quicly At UFC 226

Khalil Rountree racked up the most impressive win of his career to date tonight at UFC 226 by KO’ing kickboxing star Gokhan Saki early in the first round.

Round One:

Leg kick for Saki to start. He goes for head kick that’s blocked. Rountree with a flurry of punches, a little tense but a left hand gets through.

Hard right hand for Saki and one in return on the counter from Rountree. Another leg kick for Saki.

Suddenly a left hand from Rountree down the pipe as Saki throws a kick and he is floored! Rountree drums down on the still dazed Saki’s head with hammer-fists and that’s it, Rountree has earned a swift knockout just 1.36mins into the first round against the kickboxing ace!
