This Brutal Face Kick Knockout From Dana White's Contender Series Left One Fighter Looking Like This
Ignacio Bahamondes, don't forget the name.
Dana White certainly won't.
The UFC president was cage-side to witness one of the knockouts of the year - and it's insanely impressive (and brutal).
23-year-old Bahamondes was fighting Edson Gomez on the popular show Dana White's Contender Series.
The premise of the show sees young, up and coming mixed martial artists go toe-to-toe in a bid to win a UFC contract from the promotion's president himself.
And, well, let's just say that Bahamondes more than left his mark.

The Chilean fighter absolutely dominated the first round.
But after toying with his opponent during the opening spells of the second, Bahamondes finally decided to end the fight - and in devastating fashion too.
With his opponent staggering back after taking non-stop punishment, Bahamondes saw the opportunity to land a perfectly-timed front kick to the face.
Channelling his inner Anderson Silva, Bahamondes' move sent his rival crashing down to the canvas as his legs quickly buckled underneath him.
You can even hear Gomez's coach saying "hands up, hands up" before the devastating blow was signed, sealed and delivered.
The sheer sound of it rang out around the compact arena as the referee wasted no time in waving off the fight.
Bahamondes was awarded the victory and also a place on the UFC roster.
