The UFC Nashville main event witnessed an insane superman punch knockout when former UFC lightweight champ Anthony Pettis blasted the UFC’s #3 ranked welterweight Stephen Thompson in the second round.

Thompson seemed to be off to good start, landing his hands early and bloodying up his adversary. Then, at the very end of the second round, Pettis pulled out a crazy fight-ending superman punch that sent Thompson crashing lifeless to the floor. A couple of ground strikes connected before the fight was officially stopped. This was wild!
