Watch: MMA Fighter Herbert Batista Melts Opponent With Huge Right

MMA fighter Herbert Batista unleashed a devastating right to earn a first-round KO of Zhorabek Tesheboev at ACA 147.

Lightweights Batista and Tesheboev met on the main card of the event on Friday in Moscow, Russia. Both fighters were hoping to avoid losing for a third consecutive time.

And it seems Batista came into this fight more determined to get back to winning ways. Backing Tesheboev up against the cage, Batista unloaded a series of lunging strikes that saw him connect with the Kyrgyzstani’s chin, sending him slumping to the canvas.
