Dong Hyun Kim lands unbelievable spinning elbow KO on John Hathaway (GIF)


The UFC returned to Macau this morning for The Ultimate Fighter China Finale. While you were likely sleeping, you missed one of the greatest KO’s in the history of the sport. After an already exciting two rounds, Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway started off the third round with a bang. About a minute in, Kim landed an incredible spinning back elbow that landed flush on John Hathaway’s chin, sending him careening to the mat unconscious. It was brutal as it was beautiful.

Zombie Prophet GIF’ed up all the action this mornign, so check out the knock out below:

That is two straight jaw dropping knockouts for Kim in a row. Back at UFC Fight Night 29, Kim knocked out Erick Silva in shocking and violent fashion to get his first finish since his UFC debut. You have to think that Kim is now a top ten UFC Welterweight, and could possibly be in the title picture with one more big win. A matchup with Rory MacDonald is a legitimate possibility as the top half of the division is mostly booked with fights.
