Veteran mixed martial arts fighter Matt Brown has delivered one of 2017's most memorable knockouts, yesterday flooring Diego Sanchez with a vicious elbow in the first round.

The 36-year-old struggled to land early shots against Sanchez at UFC Fight Night 120 in Virginia, USA until his opponent attempted a kick while on the ground.

But Brown caught Sanchez's foot and made him back pedal into the netting of the octagon where he lined up a perfect headshot.

The win moved Brown to a record of 21-16 while Sanchez fell to 27-11.
