One of the most brutal knockouts in MMA took place during the Tuesday Night Contender Series fight between Julian Marquez and Phillip Hawes.

Marquez (6-1 MMA) had Hawes (4-2 MMA) grounded before landing a stiff leg kick to his opponent’s face, which resulted in a knockout as shown in the video shared by UFC president Dana White, who called it “the most vicious knockout you will ever see:”

Fortunately, Hawes was conscious and able to stand on his feet after the knockout.
