Lerone Murphy scored the biggest victory of his UFC career with an impressive knockout over Makwan Amirkhani at UFC 267.

The 29-year-old Mancuniano entered his Fight Island contest with Mr. Finland looking to extend his undefeated record and get one step closer to a fight against a top 15 opponent in the featherweight division.

Things did not immediately go according to plan for Murphy, who was forced back by Amirkhani’s persistent grip for the entire duration of the first round.

However, Murphy survived and produced a sensational knee knockout within seconds of Round 2 to knock his opponent down.

As Amirkhani fired for a two-legged takedown, The Miracle read his opponent’s level change and connected his right knee to the Finn’s chin sending him into another orbit.

His opponent collapsed in a heap and Murphy pounced, landing a devastating pair of punches before referee Marc Goddard stepped in to dismiss the contest.

Murphy couldn’t contain his emotions and let out a roar of celebration after scoring the biggest win of his career, imploring UFC President Dana White to award him the $ 50,000 (£ 36,500) Knockout of the Night bonus.

“I knew right away that the game was over,” he said after his victory.

‘I saw his head come back down and I dropped down to finish the fight. But come on, man, we’re here. We come for that top 15, and that’s 50G. 50Gs !!

Dana White, send in the pea. We are ready.’

Reflecting on his performance, Murphy said: ‘I felt a little out of place, it took me a little longer than expected to warm up.

But once it was hot, it was dangerous. My corner gave me good advice. “Stay left-handed, he’s struggling with it.”

And after that first left hand, I saw it, dip, dip, and I knew the knee would be there.

‘Everyone in my division is a killer and every match is a great match. Just give me one of them and we’re off.
