While Anderson Silva was awarded an additional 75,000$ for KO of the night after his legendary ‘teep’ Kick Knockout over Vitor Belfort, many people thought Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp, Phuket, Thailand alumni and AKA product, Kyle Kingsbury deserved the bonus after his exciting 20 second TKO victory over Brazilian Ricardo Romero.
Displaying great Muay Thai striking, Kingsbury landed a brutal knee to the body before forcing the ref to stop the fight with a flurry of punches barely 20 seconds into round 1. Kingsbury is now 3-1 in the UFC, 10-2 overall and quickly establishing himself as one of the most exciting fighters in the LHW division. Look for Kyle to return to TMT with his father Rick Kingsbury later this year. Rick is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt under legendary Dave Camarillo.
