Vitor Petrino has a knack for the knockout and he displayed that once again Saturday in his native Brazil.
In a light heavyweight bout on the UFC Fight Night 231 prelims, Petrino (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) one-punched former Cage Warriors champion Modestas Bukauskas (15-6 MMA, 3-4 UFC) to win by knockout at 1:03 of Round 2. The event took place at Ginasio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo.
A left hook was the finishing blow and no follow-up shots were needed or attempted, as referee Marc Goddard swiftly waived off the fight.

With the win, Petrino remains undefeated and wins by knockout for the first time in the UFC. Bukauskas loses for the first time since he re-signed with the promotion in February. The loss snaps a four-fight winning streak.
