The latest hellacious knockout came at Bellator 233 with Edwards delivering a swinging left high kick right onto the chin of opponent Cesar Bennett. The noise sounded like a home run being smashed out of the park and ended the bout in only 16 seconds.
A training partner of UFC megastar Jon Jones, Edwards made his Bellator debut in July and delivered the finishing with his hands instead of his feet.
