UFC Vegas 68 video: Rinya Nakamura demolishes Toshiomi Kazama in 33 seconds with brutal knockout


Rinya Nakamura made one heck of an impression in his official UFC debut.

Nakamura, 27, pulled off an early candidate for Knockout of the Year with a devastating 33-second finish of Toshiomi Kazama to win the Road to UFC bantamweight tournament at UFC Vegas 68. The Japanese prospect came out throwing hands with reckless abandon and quickly landed a brutal counter left that put Kazama out cold on the canvas.

Watch video of Nakamura’s finishing sequence below.

” That was insane,” Nakamura stated afterward. I’ve dreamed of this cage since a very long time. Fifteen Years .”

The son of MMA pioneer Kozo Nakamura, Nakamura (7-0) won both of his bouts in the Road to UFC tournament with first-round stoppages, submitting Gugun Gusman and then knocking out Shohei Nose. He now enters the UFC as a name to watch in the 135-pound division.

For Kazama (10-3), the setback marked just the second knockout loss of the 25-year-old’s MMA career.
