Gokhan Saki was forced to endure some moments of adversity, but in the end the kickboxing star came out with a thrilling victory in his debut at UFC Fight Night 117.

More than 13 years after his first and only MMA bout, Saki (1-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) made the jump from kickboxing right into the UFC for a bout with Henrique da Silva (12-3 MMA, 2-4 UFC). He made a splash, scoring a first-round knockout in the FXX-televised light heavyweight bout at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Saki’s debut win vs. da Silva at UFC Fight Night 117.
