Crazy moment BRAVE MMA star Ruziboev brutally KO's rival Mane with vicious slam while trapped in triangle choke
NURSULTON RUZIBOEV produced an unbelievable slam knockout in his BRAVE CF 47 clash with Ibrahim Mane on Thursday.
The Uzbekistani separated Mane from consciousness in the first round of their 175lb catchweight bout.
After finding himself fully-mounted, Ruziboev, 29-8, managed to hip escape his way into Mane's guard.
Shortly after being on the wrong end of a reversal, Mane threw up a triangle – which appeared to be tight.
Ruziboev, however, remained calm and proceeded to elevate the Frenchman into the air.
Mane, unwisely, opted not to give up the submission attempt, which led to him being slammed on his head.
Unaware his opponent was out cold, Ruziboev landed two hammer fists before the referee called a halt to proceedings.
Ruziboev's KO spread like wildfire through the MMA world and left fight fans stunned.

One fan tweeted: "Whoa. Mane even tried to snag a leg once he realized he was about to go for a ride.
"That's a helluva slam even without that much elevation."
Another said: "TURNING A MISERY INTO A MIRACLE YOU LOVE TO SEE IT."
And another said: " Loked like Ruziboev dropped a forearm on his face in the process. Vicious."
Ruziboev's stunning finish drew comparisons to Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson's legendary KO of Ricardo Arona.
The former UFC light-heavyweight champion's KO of the Brazilian at PRIDE Critical Countdown in 2004 is regarded by many to be the greatest slam knockout in MMA history.
And some fight fans were furious Ruziboev's latest KO was mentioned in the same breath as Jackson's.
One tweeted: "Love a good slam KO, there's never 2 slam KOs done in the same way."
Another said: "The rampage slam was a bit more violent but this ain’t bad."
And another said: "Awesome violencing, but I have to say when you set it up as ‘Rampage-Arona style’ I was hoping for even more violence."
