After two and a half years away from kickboxing, and more than 13 years removed from his lone MMA fight, Gokhan Saki picked up a highlight reel in his return.
Saki (1-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) knocked out Henrique da Silva (12-4 MMA, 2-4 UFC) with a massive left hand with 15 seconds left in the first round – just when it looked like he had faded from a fast start and was on the ropes.
The light heavyweight bout was part of the main card of today’s UFC Fight Night 117 event at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, near Tokyo. It aired on FXX following prelims on the same channel.
