Chinese standout Taiyilake Nueraji delivered a highlight-reel knockout during his Road to UFC 2 quarterfinal on Saturday.

Emanating from the UFC Performance Institute in Shanghai, China, the Road to UFC 2 continued with its second day of quarterfinal action. The event delivered a series of memorable moments, none more brutal than Taiyilake Nueraji’s vicious second-round KO of HanSeul Kim with a perfectly-timed elbow strike that has to be seen and heard, to be believed.

With the win, Taiyilake Nueraji will move on to the next round in the tournament. Appropriately nicknamed ‘Super Saiyan’, Nureaji moved to 9-1 in his professional mixed martial arts career with eight of those victories coming by way of knockout.
