Nikita Krylov’s run outside the UFC took another spectacular step forward when he crushed Emanuel Newton just 43 seconds into today’s Fight Nights Global 77 main event.

Krylov (22-5) improved to 2-0 since he parted ways with the UFC earlier this year with a quick and vicious first-round knockout of former Bellator light heavyweight champion Newton (26-13-1) in the bout at Energetik Sports Palace in Surgut, Khanty-Mansi, Russia.

Watch the full fight video above, or check out highlights below (via Twitter):

With the win, Krylov’s career stoppage rate remains at a perfect 100 percent. “The Miner” has put his opponent away inside the distance in all 22 of his career victories.

Although he put in a solid run under the UFC banner, establishing a spot in the top 15 of the light heavyweight rankings, it appears Krylov, No. 11 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA light heavyweight rankings, is not slowing down outside the octagon, winning his two fights thus far in a combined 96 seconds.
