GIF: Incredible flying knee KO from last night's UFC action

UFC Fight Night 38 was pretty damn good and this insane flying knee finish by Godofredo Pepey was one of the best KOs you'll ever see in the Octagon.

The headline news from UFC Fight Night 38 was Dan Henderson defeating Mauricio "Shogun" Rua via a flurry of punches but it was a much less high-profile match that gave us the moment of the night in Natal, Brazil.

The featherweight bout between Brazilian Godofredo Pepey and UFC debutant Noad Lahat was one of the prelim fights but it provided us with a top-of-the-bill type finish.

Pepey was the aggressor from the get go but Lahat had managed to get himself into the fight before the stunning finish. Midway throught the first round Pepey flew across the ring with his right knee raised before connecting perfectly with his left knee, sending Lahat to the canvas.

The referee soon stepped in and called the fight off. After two defeats on the bounce, Pepey was probably fighting for his UFC life. We reckon he will be okay after pulling this highlight reel KO.
