Video: Michael Pagani delivers devastating flying knee knockout at Venator FC 12


Michael Pagani just scored one of the best knockouts of the year.

Saturday’s undefeated Pagani met Dylan Hantig at Venator FC in Montecatini Terme. The hometown fighter “Sniper”, nicknamed “Sniper,” showed how destructive he can become, putting Hantig into a stupor with a spectacular flying knee.

Hantig was then forced to attempt to get in by Pagani, who used his power and length to cause problems. Hantig lost with an early hook and Pagani dropped his opponent. Hantig then intervened and pounced on Pagani with an impeccable flying knee. Hantig was left out of the match in just 90 second.

The win moved Pagani to 5-0 (1 NC) in his professional career. The 23-year old Italian fighter stated that he would like to challenge for the lightweight title in the near future. It’s possible that Pagani will get his wish or be promoted to a larger promotion with performances such as his spinning kick knockout against Joshua Onwordi at Venator FC .
