UFC on ABC 6 results: Volkan Oezdemir leaves Johnny Walker stiff after terrifying knockout

Volkan Oezdemir’s power was on full display once again Saturday as he savagely knocked out Johnny Walker in Round 1 of their UFC on ABC 6 bout.

The light heavyweight fight kicked off the main card at Kingdom Arena and ended at 2:28 after a pair of Oezdemir (20-7 MMA, 8-6 UFC) punches to the dome of Walker (21-9 MMA, 7-6 UFC).

Walker was in semi-survival mode for much of the minute that led up to his demise. Oezdemir landed more throughout the sequence and Walker was unable to reset himself completely. A left-right combination folded Walker like a lawn chair. Already scrambled, Walker then absorbed a massive follow-up shot that stiffened his entire body.

With a busted nose, Walker was alert and sitting on the stool after the knockout but was not present for the final decision.

After the victory, Oezdemir mentioned Jan Blachowicz and Jamahal Hill as potential next opponents. Oezdemir has won back-to-back fights and three of his most recent four.

Walker has been knocked out in back-to-back fights and is winless in his most recent three.
