Not often do we see spinning-back head kicks in the heavyweight division, but Sergey Bilostenniy reminded us they can happen.
Bilostenniy’s stoppage win came in the very first round. The action was fairly low until the finishing sequence. Bilostenniy connected with the spinning kick, which badly wobbled Aras (7-3 MMA, 0-2 BMMA), and then followed up with punches to close out the show.
