UFC heavyweight, Justin Tafa made it six knockout wins from six professional triumphs tonight on the preliminary card of UFC Vegas 45 — stopping Harry Hunsucker with a thunderous opening round high-kick.

The Auckland native, who incidentally, became the first heavyweight in the history of the organization to miss weight yesterday, came in at 267lbs, two pounds beyond the division limit, drawing notable attention.

Dropping Hunsucker early in the first round, Tafa then shrugged the challenger off before launching a left high kick at the fence, and despite managing to block the kick with both forearms, Hunsucker was dropped, suffering a opening round knockout loss to the New Zealand native.
