Yair Rodriguez KOs Andre Fili With Left Kick To Open UFC 197 Main Card

by

Yair Rodriguez got Saturday night’s UFC 197 main card off on the right foot with a stunning left kick.

Rodriguez dominated his featherweight fight against Andre Fili in Las Vegas, then finished his opponent with a mid-air kick switcheroo that produced a second-round knockout.

Rodriguez (7-1-0) isn’t ranked among the UFC’s top 15 featherweights, but if he produces more exciting results like this one against Fili (15-4-0), that soon could change.

Rodriguez understandably was thankful after his victory.
