LeRoy Johnson was down for a scary-long time after taking faceplant KO at PFL 7

The first fight of the night at PFL 7 featured one of the best – and scariest – knockouts of the month.

Muhammed DeReese (6-0) put LeRoy Johnson (8-3) down and out in absolutely vicious fashion courtesy of a perfectly placed knee strike in the opening round of their light heavyweight bout at PFL 7, which took place at Ocean Resort Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.

Johnson went down face-first into the canvas after absorbing the blow, not only hitting his head on the mat, but the cage post, as well. He was down for roughly seven minutes before getting back to his feet in what was a rather frightening scene.
