Ricardo Ramos just put his name in the pool for Knockout of the Year.
The UFC featherweight pulled off an incredible spinning elbow KO at UFC on ESPN 37 on Saturday in Austin, Texas. Ramos (16-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) slept a tough Danny Chavez 72 seconds into the first round.
It was flawless performance by Ramos.
The Brazilian immediately looked to pressure Chavez (11-5-1 MMA, 1-2-1 UFC) and walk him down as soon as the fight started. Closing in on Chavez near the cage, Ramos spun and clipped Chavez right on the temple with a hard elbow. Chavez was quickly out and dropped to the canvas.
The win got Ramos back in the win column. He was coming off a unanimous decision loss to Zubaira Tukhugov in October 2021 at UFC 267.
