‘HE IS OUT COLD … WOW’
What a start to UFC Fight Island! Davey Grant gets the action underway with a monstrous left hook that put Martin Day to sleep inside the Octagon.
After a back and forth opening two rounds, Grant put an end to proceedings with a quick one-two punch combination that ended with his left hand landing clean on the chin of Day.

The nasty shot left UFC commentator Michael Bisping in disbelief and stunned fight fans who were watching on.
“He is out cold … wow,” Bisping said.
Grant was dropped in the opening round of the fight but bounced back to record the victory. Announcing after the fight he had broken his jaw.
“Yeah it’s broke. I feel it. It’s worth it. Definitely worth it,” Grand said.
“He has good hands. Dropped us in the first. Didn’t know where I was at.”
OH. MY. LORD. Grant catches Day and puts him out ice cold. WOW #UFC251
Wow. Thunderous left hook from Grant. Fight's over. Great way to start #UFC251!
