UFC lightweight Grant Dawson produced an unbelievable buzzer-beater KO last weekend – knocking his opponent out cold with brutal hammer fists.
The Glory MMA standout locked horns with veteran Leonardo Santos on the UFC Vegas 22 prelims last Sunday morning.
And with just seconds left of the third and final round, the Dana White's Contender Series graduate knocked out the Brazilian with a series of vicious hammer fists.
Fight fans were left stunned by the stoppage, with one tweeting: "Crazy KO."
Another stunned watcher said: "Ooooooft."
And another tweeted: "Dayuummmm."
Most fans, however, were frustrated the referee allowed Santos to take additional punishment.
One tweeted: "Wtf was the ref doing? At least two big shots after he was out."
Another said: "Awful reffing he was out after 1st one landed clean.
"I could tell on me couch and he took 3 clean more for no reason. Smh."
Dawson's stunning stoppage of Santos, who entered their showdown on the back of a six-fight win streak, came following a rousing speech from his head coach James Krause.
A fired-up Krause told an exhausted Dawson: "Hey, I don't know how this being scored. Do you understand me?
"Look at me. I don't know how this is [being] scored.You can't take him down, you've got to try knock him out.

"He can't f***ing hurt you. You're just throwing one backside six. Add punches to it, put some numbers together for me.
"Do you understand? Hey, we need a finish here. I don't know if it's 1-1.
"It could be 2-0 your way, it could be 2-0 the other way.
"I don't f***ing know, bro. We got to go to finish here, okay?
"Don't leave this to the judges. I want you to leave this all here.
"You've got five minutes, I want you to try knock his f***ing head off. You understand me?"
Victory over Santos was Dawson's eighth on the spin and fourth inside the octagon.
And the 27-year-old has now set his sights on another UFC veteran in Clay Guida.
