David Martinez defended his bantamweight title in highlight-reel fashion.

Martinez is the Combate Global bantamweight champion and was defending his belt in the main event of the Combate Global: ‘Martinez vs Zarauz’ on Saturday. It was the first defense of his bantamweight title he won back in October and it was Martinez defeating Jose Zarauz by fourth-round knockout with a spinning wheel kick.

The wheel kick came out of nowhere and landed perfectly for Martinez to get the KO victory. Once it landed, Zarauz fell flat on his face and Martinez ran to land ground-and-pound but the ref jumped in to stop the fight.
