The Best Knockouts of UFC
In the opening frame, Azaitar landed heavy punches early and often on Packalen, who was put on his back foot on more than a few occasions. One minute past the midway point, Azaitar connected with a vicious overhand right that landed behind Packalen’s left ear.
Packalen was out on his feet, but instead of falling over backwards, he tipped over forward and crashed, violently hitting the canvas face first.

As UFC commentator Jon Anik pointed out on the broadcast, Packalen’s legs twitched as he laid unconscious. Luckily, the 32-year-old lightweight was able to walk out of the octagon under his own power.
The loss was Packalen’s third in four UFC appearances.
