You might remember Magomed Bibulatov from his brief flyweight run in the UFC.
You’re about to know him for this freakish walk-off spinning kick knockout that’s stunned the MMA world.
Bibulatov ended Rodrigo Praia in the first round of their ACA promotion fight in Russia after his spinning wheel kick collected his opponent clean in the head.
After sizing up his opponent, Bibulatov let fly with his ambitious roundhouse and dropped Praia without needing to finish him off on the ground. The fight was stopped just 71 seconds into the contest.
The kick stunned the MMA community with UFC journalist Ariel Helwani among the commentators to label it a contender for knockout of the year.

The reverse camera view is even more terrifying.

Bibulatov famously left the UFC last year after a sluggish 1-2 start to his career in the promotion as the flyweight division continued to be sidelined by the world’s premier MMA organisation.
After Bibulatov left the UFC, former flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson also left and reigning flyweight champion Henry Cejudo said he has retired after his win over Dominick Cruz in May.
However, Bibulatov did enough to make Dana White want him back when he stole the show on the undercard of the Deivi Daniel Oliveira de Almeida showdown with Abdul-Rakhman Dudaev.
The nuts card also featured this one-punch knockout which saw Rasul Albaskhanov put Alexey Shaposhnikov to sleep.
