UFC Fight Night 184 video: Cory Sandhagen knocks Frankie Edgar stiff with 28-second flying knee KO

Cory Sandhagen added another violent finish to his highlight reel at UFC Fight Night 184 against perhaps his biggest-name opponent to date.

Taking on Frankie Edgar in the co-main event bout, Sandhagen (14-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) landed a flying knee that stiffened and face-planted the former UFC lightweight champion just 28 seconds into Round 1.

The bantamweight bout took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It streamed on ESPN+.

Edgar (24-9-1 MMA, 18-9-1 UFC) came out aggressive, moving straight forward at Sandhagen. After a few brief exchanges, Sandhagen leaped into the air and connected with a vicious jumping knee. Edgar’s consciousness left him on impact and he keeled over onto the canvas.

The finish was the second quickest flying knee knockout in UFC history behind Jorge Masvidal’s five-second KO of Ben Askren at UFC 239 in July 2019.

With the victory, Sandhagen extends a win into a winning streak. Following an 88-second submission loss to Aljamain Sterling in June 2020, Sandhagen finished Marlon Moraes with strikes in October.

A former UFC lightweight champion and UFC featherweight title challenger, Edgar suffered his first loss at bantamweight in his defeat to Sandhagen. In his last six fights, Edgar has gone 2-4 with two losses coming inside the distance.
