Manchester uber-prospect remains undefeated post-UFC 267 — stopping featherweight veteran, Makwan Amirkhani with a stunning second round knockout via a massive knee just 14-seconds into the frame.
Murphy, now 11-0-1 as a professional, suffered a stifling takedown in the opening round as Amirkhani lodged significant control time on top.
In the early goings of the second round, however, Murphy successfully timed another takedown shot from Amirkhani, catching him flush with a huge right knee, knocking him unconscious immediately.
