Mike Perry may already be a contender for the "knockout of the year" award following his brutal elbow blow to Jake Ellenberger at UFC Fight Night 108 on Saturday (22 April).

The up and coming welterweight knockout artist improved his record to 10-1 after a standing elbow finish knocked Ellenberger out cold in the second round of their bout.

The victory means "Platinum" has now won all 10 of his fights via knockout as he looks to keep rising in the welterweight rankings.

Following the fight, Perry spoke about how his training led to the finish.

"I do everything I've been trained to do," Perry said. "Let's go baby, that's what I was looking for! Shout out Nashville."

"I've been setting up that left hook for a few weeks with my boxing coach. I fake it low, throw it high. And I've been setting up that right elbow too because I knew he wanted to hit me with that overhand right."

Perry then asked the crowd, "I want to ask ya'll whose life you want me to ruin next," and added, "Anybody, let's move up the rankings. We moving on up. That was 13, who beat my last opponent? I don't care. Let's get him. Anybody."

Perry's last opponent to have inflicted his only defeat of his career was Alan Jouban, who won via unanimous decision in December 2016.

Jouban then fought Gunnar Nelson, teammate of Conor McGregor, at UFC London, losing via submission to the Icelander, so it definitely seems like Perry is eyeing a bout with "Gunni" next.
