While most people were out whooping it up on Friday night, Arthur Guseinov was busy posting a spectacular spinning backfist knockout at “M-1 Global Challenger 26.” Unfortunately for middleweight Tyson Jeffries, he was on the wrong end of the highlight reel strike and wound up completely unconscious for his efforts.
Although a heavyweight battle between Pat Bennett and Kenny Garner was scheduled as the night’s featured attraction, Guseinov stole the show with his whirling dervish ways.
The Russian bumped his record to 8-2 following the victory. Six of his wins have now come via some form of knockout.
The event took place at The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center in Orange County, California. Showtime broadcasted the card’s main bouts.
