The UFC’s return to London wasn’t the only event that delivered highlight-reel finishes Saturday.

UFC Fight Night 204 had nine stoppages in 12 fights at The O2 – and led to nine $50,000 post-fight performance bonuses for each winner who didn’t need the judges. But Rizin 34 produced a big highlight, too, albeit not in MMA.

Late in the first round of their 134-pound kickboxing bout in Japan, Yuki Kasahara had Motoki backing toward the corner of the ring from some punches. Then Kasahara ended things in the blink of an eye.

While Motoki seemed to be about to fall to the canvas from the short barrage of punches, Kasahara launched a jumping knee that drilled him in the chin. If Motoki was about to be out a split second earlier, he was out for sure from the left knee and fell through the ropes.

Check out Kasahara’s violent finish in the video below courtesy of Rizin’s Twitter feed.
