Did you cancel UFC Fight Pass just before the free two-month trial period ended Friday night because you didn’t think “The Ultimate Fighter China Finale” was worth your $9.99/month?

Don’t feel bad, you likely weren’t the only one. At the same time, you’re probably kicking yourself now for skimping out on the subscription fee because the show’s featured attraction showcased a solid “Knockout of the Year” candidate.

Welterweight Dong Hyun Kim (pictured) kicked off UFC Fight Pass in style by knocking out John Hathaway with a fancy spinning back elbow on Saturday in Macau.

The official stoppage time in Kim’s finish came at 1:02 in the third round.

Kim also left China with an extra $50,000 paycheck for “Performance of the Night.”

Good news, it turns out you won’t miss the strike completely. The UFC has released Kim’s in-cage post-fight interview, which captures the ‘bow.

TUF China Finale took place at CotaiArena inside the Venetian Resort in Macau, China.
