01 Jan Video: Paris Artis scores highlight-reel head kick KO at CFFC 87
Paris Artis could find himself on the short list of the best head kick knockouts of 2020.
The unbeaten lightweight improved to 4-0 with a powerful high kick that flattened Ryan Rizco late in the first round of their bout at Cage Fury FC 87 in Philadelphia on Friday.
After tagging Rizco with a right hand, Artis loaded up his leg and caught Ryan Rizco coming in. The head kick sent an unconscious Rizco plummeting to the mat and the referee rushing in for the save.
That’s four finishes in four wins for the 26-year-old Artis, who has only seen one opponent make it out of the first round.
