MMA fighter Josiel Silva showed exactly how to execute a left hook KO against Islam Meshev at ACA 149.
Bantamweights Silva and Meshev met on the undercard of the event on Friday in Moscow, Russia. Silva was gunning for his fifth straight finish, while Meshev was hoping to bounce back from defeat.
But unfortunately for the Russian, his head ended up bouncing off the canvas instead. After Meshev stepped forward to throw a routine body kick, Silva unleashed a straight right quickly followed by a blistering left hook that sent Meshev crashing to the canvas stiff as a board.
