NATHIAS FREDERICK landed a brutal punch to defeat Jamie Richardson at Cage Warriors 118 on Friday night.
The British MMA star, 37, came out all guns blazing in round three and delivered a left hook that knocked his opponent out cold.
Frederick, who was defending his middleweight title, landed a high-kick that put Richardson on the back foot and then a right-left combo, before the final blow that had the challenger floored.
Cage Warriors has been a conveyor belt of talent for the UFC, and Fredericks might've impressed president Dana White in his latest fight.
Frederick started astonishingly, knocking Richardson to the ground with his first punch of the contest.
However, he allowed Richardson to regain his composure and return to his feet.
Then, in the first two rounds Frederick seemed to struggle to keep his feet – slipping and sliding on the canvas that allowed Richardson back into the fight.
However, with Frederick boasting so much power – it was only a matter of time before he landed a strike that would end proceedings.
And it came in round three with one of the most lethal punches you'll see in MMA all year.
Frederick now boasts a 9-2-1 record – and is currently on a streak of nine wins.
He has now firmly in the shop window for White to consider for the UFC.
