LYOTO Machida made quick work of Mark Munoz, knocking out the Filipino-American in the first round of the main event of UFC Fight Night 30 Saturday in Manchester, England.
Machida, fighting for the first time at middleweight, connected on a rear roundhouse kick to the head, sending the Munoz to the canvas.

It was Machida’s 20th victory in 24 fights, while has dropped two of his last three fights for a 13-4 record.
