Is This The Knockout Of The Year? Mzwandile ‘Shakebone’ Hlongwa Crushes Opponent With Vicious Spinning Back Elbow

The attention of the Mixed Martial Arts world may have been glued on UFC 230 in New York, an event in which Daniel Cormier created history, however over South African at EFC 75 - Extreme Fighting Championship - the Cape Town showcase spectacle witnessed one of the knockouts of 2018.

The brutal KO came from Mzwandile "Shakebone" Hlongwa who instantly sent his opponent Torbjorn Madsen to sleep after he conjured a rapid one-two punch, swiftly followed up by an incredible spinning back elbow - which came out of absolutely nowhere - then ended with a savage final punch.

The act itself was perfectly summed up by one of the stunned commentators who was in total disbelief at what had just taken place in front of his eyes:

“Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, what just happened!

“One-Two! That was a massive shot. He set it up with a punch and he fell down like a piece of lumber.”

Well, they don’t call him ‘Shakebone’ for nothing!

Hlongwa has now won his last four fights after that furious first round knockout triumph over Norwegian Madsen, who was previously unbeaten in five fights.

Madsen was supervised by medical staff and taken out of the arena on a stretcher, but after recovering from the KO he would later go on to tell TV 2:

“I'm in the ambulance now. I'm going to a check in the hospital. Everything is fine. This can happen, it's fun. Well done by him.”

You can watch the KO below, but be warned, it's absolutely brutal.
