This Is One Hell Of A Straight-Left Knockout To Land In Your UFC Debut

That's a beautiful straight left right there - and I ain't talkin about a smoking hot liberal - I'm talking about a perfect punch. 

Carlos Prates is a former muay thai fighter with over 100 fights on his resume (who only committed fully to MMA in the last few years!), and he got an opportunity on Dana White's Contender Series last August - where he secured a UFC contract with a huge straight left knockout....

....and here he is, less than six months later, following it up with another straight left knockout over Trevin Giles in his UFC debut! This picture really says it all when it comes to the power he's packing in that punch, too....

It was a much needed and much appreciated finish after watching four straight fights go to decision on the prelims - which I believe Elon Musk skipped out on, because to the best of my knowledge, he's still not at the UFC Apex….

What a casual. If he fully stands Dana up after saying he'd come through, I will be getting in line behind Zuckerberg to challenge him to the octagon. That just wouldn't be right. 

We've got four fights left tonight, including Dan Ige vs Andre "Touchy" Fili in the co-main event - which should be absolute fireworks - so tune into ESPN+ now if you're interested!
