Almighty Fighting Championship’s second event of the year is in the books, and the fight card delivered a memorable night of action. Fighters across the card made their case for earning the new juicy bonuses. One man in particular stood out, Robbie Kennedy.
After several contenders emerged, Robbie Kennedy put a stamp on it with his Anderson Silva like front-kick, which saw the light heavyweight fighter knock Rhino Daley, out cold in the first round.
Robbie Kennedy vs Rhino Daley
Both men wasted no time in engaging and throwing at one another in the opening road. Within seconds, after being touted an elite level kickboxer by the commentary team, Kennedy completed a takedown on his opponent.
Kennedy smothered Daley from the top position and was incredibly patient in his attempt on advancing the position. Eventually, Daley had space to manoeuvre and found himself back on his feet, catching a kick of Kennedy’s and capitalizing on the counter.
However, moments after, both men found themselves within touching distance of each other. Kennedy throws a front kick, which whisks past his opponent, followed by a right hand, but as the right-hand retreats, Robbie Kennedy lands a beautifully timed front kick to the jaw of Daley, knocking him out cold.

Multiple media outlets picked up the viral knockout and will go down as one of the greatest knockouts in Almighty Fighting Championship history.

The mouth-watering finish has left UK fight fanatics wanting to see more from Kennedy. Last year saw him four times, so you can certainly expect to see an active Robbie Kennedy in 2022?
