BOSTON — Abdul Razak Alhassan caught Sabah Homasi flush with a right uppercut in the first round for one of the more spectacular knockouts in recent UFC history to win a welterweight bout at UFC 220 on Saturday night (Sunday, Manila time).
Razak Alhassan knocked Homasi cold with a vicious right that brought a gasp from the sellout crowd at TD Garden.
Homasi was motionless on his back for a couple of minutes and eventually needed assistance to sit on a stool in his corner. Trainers placed bags of ice on his back and neck.
Razak Alhassan already beat Homasi in a controversial stoppage at UFC 218. UFC granted an immediate rematch and Razak Alhassan left no doubt about this outcome.
Even with ferocious heavyweight puncher Francis Ngannou on the card in the main event, it's going to be hard for any fighter to top Razak Alhassan's KO.
Kyle Bochniak, of Gloucester, Massachusetts, had the home crowd behind him in a unanimous decision win over Brandon Davis. The crowd roared for Bochniak's walk to the cage and cheered when the decision was announced.
