Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida (20-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) announced his arrival to the middleweight division in highlight-reel fashion with a spectacular head-kick knockout of Mark Munoz (13-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) in Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 30 main event.

After spending the entirety of his UFC career at 205 pounds, “The Dragon” made his long awaited 185-pound debut in memorable fashion, putting fellow middleweight contenders on notice.

The finish of Munoz was the fastest knockout of the Brazilian’s UFC career, and it left the MMA community – including UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman – excited for Machida’s future.
