It's fair to say that the UFC 245 card hasn't disappointed thus far, and we may have just been treated to our highlight of the night (we hope not, of course). Punahele Soriano capped off his first career appearance in the Octagon with a thunderous first-round knockout of Oskar Piechota on Saturday night. Soriano spotted an opening with Piechota restricted alongside the cage and unleashed a LETHAL left-handed punch to his foe's dome piece. The KO was captivating in real time, but the slow-mo version is MUCH more mind-blowing. Pay close attention to Piechota's lips upon receiving the blow.

Yeah, it would've taken a miracle to see Piechota bounce back from that one. What a way for Soriano to announce himself onto the UFC scene.
