I'm a sucker for a good mercy stoppage.

Not every cool knockout need be of the flying-double-spinning-head-crushing variety. I mean, yes, most of them are like that, but at PFL 2019 3 on June 6, Emiliano Sordi didn't need such things. He didn't even need a knockdown.

Against fellow (and far more well-known) UFC veteran Vinny Magalhaes, Sordi brutalized his opponent over a pretty long period of time before using a barrage of hooks and uppercuts—including some nasty body shots—to force Magalhaes into what was essentially a standing turtle along the fence. Referee Dan Miragliotta had seen enough.

Magalhaes was the runner-up in PFL's last season, so Sordi's win is particularly noteworthy for its significance as well as its wince inducement.
