MMA Junkie's 'Knockout of the Month' for August: A spinning backfist to extend a streak

SMG Logo By MMAjunkie Staff of SMG | Slide 1 of 6: (18-7-1 MMA, 11-3 UFC) got out to a fast start in the first round, then stayed patient when (12-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) tried to turn things around in the second. That patience culminated with a stoppage with just four seconds left in the middle frame. Luque's heavy leg kicks slowed down Brown in the first, and the Brazilian used that opportunity to pepper in big shots with his hands. Halfway through the first, a right hand sent Brown to the canvas. Brown rallied in the second, and he landed a spinning elbow and a takedown. But once Luque was back to his feet, he connected with a knee with Brown against the cage and a flurry of ground-and-pound wrapped things up late in the round. https://twitter.com/ufc/status/1289745728277843975
