Watch: MMA Fighter Sends Opponent Falling Face-First In KO

Amateur MMA fighter Shane Wellman had a debut for the ages with a jaw-dropping knockout over Steve Pyles at Cage Titans 55.

Wellman and Pyles fought at a catchweight of 190lbs on the prelims of Cage Titans 55. The card featured three title fights and a mix of both Muay Thai and MMA matchups.

Nerves are often prevalent for fighters who are making their first appearances in the cage, though Wellman showed that any anxiety was left backstage as he blitzed Pyles with a series of right hands for the finish.

The action at Cage Titans 55 was capped off by a welterweight title fight between Joe Giannetti and Trevor Gudde.
