The MMA promotion One Championship ranked Honorio Banario’s stoppage of Jaro- slav Jartim as the second best knockout of 2017.
Banario connected on a left hook that knocked Jartim out cold in April, his first win by knockout since 2012.
Only Martin Nguyen’s shocking knockout win over Eduard Folayang—to capture the One lightweight title last November—was ranked high- er than Banario’s, easily mak- ing Nguyen’s historic stop- page the Knockout of the Year. Also in the One Champion- ship’s Top 5 is Boracay-based Swedish fighter Zebaztian Kadestam’s stunner over for- mer world title contender Luis Santos, which ended up third on the list.
Meanwhile, Jomary Tor- res’ shock submission over Rika Ishige made it to One’s top submissions of the year, ranking fifth.
Torres stunned the One Championship community when she successfully forced more heralded Ishige to tap out during their fight at One: Kings and Conq rs in Ma- cau last August.
