The MMA community went absolutely bonkers as Ismael Bonfim dropped Terrance McKinney out cold with a highlight flying knee at UFC 283
Talk about a way to make your UFC debut in style.
After an appearance alongside his brother on Dana White’s Contender Series in September 2022 — where he scored a unanimous decision over Nariman Abbasov — Ismael Bonfim made waves in his first Octagon showing with a knockout of highlight top prospect Terrance McKinney.
After piecing McKinney up in the first round, Bonfim landed an already early contender for Knockout of the Year. With both men near the cage wall, McKinney jumped and landed a knee right to the face of McKinney, causing McKinney to fall to the canvas face first and out cold.
