Old school UFC veteran ends fight quickly and brutally
Patrick Smith is a kickboxer, martial artist and MMA fighter who competed in the first few UFCs. He was one of the most dangerous guys in the early days who not only had a lengthy background in kickboxing but also had an extensive background in traditional martial arts such as karate and taekwondo.
In the following video we see the old school UFC veteran Patrick Smith competing in a karate match and it doesn’t last very long at all, 2 seconds to be exact.
Patrick Smith’s opening move is the side kick but that seems to just be a set up for the wheel kick that comes next and knocks his opponent clear out of the ring! You see in the slow motion replay it connected very clean too and was by no means a grazing shot.
Pat Smith had a short night in the first UFC, losing his first match to legend Ken Shamrock. It was UFC 2 where he really shined though and put on one of the most brutal beat downs ever seen inside the Octagon against ninjutsu practitioner Scott Morris. Smith made it to the finals that night but ultimately lost to Royce Gracie like everybody did back then.
Don't blink. This one's over quickly and brutally.
