Muradov was landing good combinations to the body in the early minutes of the fights. Compared to 96 total strikes(36 significant) of Smith, Muradov landed 183 total strikes(91 significant). He would have won the fight via decision, but what better way to win a fight than a highlight-reel knockout.
Makhmud Muradov threw a strong hook to the top that found the chin of Trevor Smith. As soon as Makhmud landed the punch Smith was out cold. His mouthpiece went flying across the ring as he felt on the ground in a very disturbing fashion.
With this win, Makhmud is on a 12 fight win streak at the moment. On the other hand, things are not looking good for Trevor Smith as it was his third loss in a row. Makhmud Makhmud also won the night bonus of 50k dollars for the highlight-reel finish.
