Coming off the first loss of his young professional MMA career, 2012 Olympic wrestling bronze medalist Damian Janikowski was looking to get back into the win column at Saturday’s KSW 47 in Lodz, Poland. Things were going well for the most part against fellow middleweight Aleksandar Ilic... until he ended up on the wrong end of one of the best knockouts of 2019.

Serbia’s Ilic turned things around with an incredible question mark kick KO that sent Janikowski straight to the canvas and done for the night. You need to watch this clip right now because it was quick and brutal.

Here are multiple vids from multiple angles and speeds.

That’s consecutive defeats for Janikowski, whose previous outing saw him stopped by Michal Materla. As for Ilic, he’s won five consecutive fights, including his last three by finish. “Joker” certainly found one hell of a way to win his KSW debut.
