A knockout via flying knee always seems to be one of the most brutal yet awesome finishes one can see inside a mixed martial arts arena.

On Friday, at the Tuff-N-Uff 129 show in Las Vegas, featherweight novice Desmond Monabat gave the latest demonstration of the savagery of the maneuver when he used it to separate his opponent from his senses.

David Loureiro was left face-first on the canvas after eating the shot and lay unconscious for at least 30 seconds while the commentators waxed lyrical over what they had just witnessed.
