The UFC Kansas City preliminary card got a wicked finish when the promotion’s #4 ranked flyweight, Brandon Royval, slayed the #5 ranked featherweight, Matheus Nicolau, with a devastating knee in the opening round.

It was the knee that sent Nicolau silly to score the knockdown, and then a brutal barrage of elbows and punches finished the deal. This makes three wins in a row for Brandon, and back-to-back first round finishes. Royval is simply must-see T.V.
