- Brazil’s Luis Henrique da Silva earned a spectacular KO win at KSW
- It was the 33-year-old’s third KO/TKO win this year
Brazilian MMA fighter Luis Henrique da Silva may have just scored one of the most incredible knockout victories in the sport this year. The 33-year-old finished his opponent Tomasz Narkun at KSW 75 in less than two rounds with a devastating front kick.
What. A. Knockout.
Da Silva came in as a debutant at KSW but he was immediately slated against former KSW light heavyweight champion and No. 1 contender Narkun at KSW 75 in Nowy Sącz, Poland. Nevertheless, the Brazilian still pulled off a spectacular KO victory over the KSW stalwart.
Both fighters survived each other in Round 1. But Da Silva only needed less than 30 seconds to finish Narkun in the Round 2. After a clinch, “Frankenstein” threw a savage front kick that landed straight to the former champ’s chin. The kick saw Narkun quickly falling down to the mat and Da Silva finished the job by landing one more punch. The referee decided he’d seen enough and stopped the fight.

There has been a lot of ups and downs for Henrique da Silva after leaving the UFC in September 2017. Aside from the promotion, he was 4-4 in the first eight fights he fought.
Da Silva was declared winner via KO, extending his impressive winning streak to three fights in a row. The win over Narkun was Da Silva’s third KO/TKO victory this year.
However, Narkun failed to resurrect his career after returning from a 10-month layoff.
From the looks of it, Da Silva could be looking at another big fight at KSW, a championship bout maybe? Let’s wait and see.
