The co-main event for UFC UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs. Branch saw Mike Perry handle business like a true boss player, as he annihilated Alex Reyes in just 1:19 into the opening round. Perry went right after Reyes, letting his opponent feel the power early and often, before blasting a devastating knee to the face from the Thai clinch. Reyes collapsed from the force of the knee, and thankfully, the referee was right there to prevent any further damage.

Check out Eddie Mercado’s play-by-play of Mike Perry’s destruction of Alex Reyes:

Rd.1- Perry stalks forward and eats a teep to the gut. Reyes lands a clean right hand as Perry over commits. Perry lands a knee followed by a big right hand. Perry grabs ahold of the Thai Plum, throws an elbow, then regains the clinch to go to town with a brutal knee to the face, sending Reyes free falling to the canvas. Yikes!
