UFC Fight Pass 500 Moments video: Valentina Shevchenko delivers knockout for the ages

UFC 244 marked the promotion’s 500th live event, and the organization is celebrating the occasion with “an internally curated list of 500 Unforgettable Moments from UFC history.”

Scheduled to be released in seven installments, UFC Fight Pass 500 Moments shines a spotlight on some of the most memorable highlights – and lowlights – from the UFC’s 26-year run, both in and out of the cage.

UFC Fight Pass officials have committed to sharing video of a few of those key moments with MMA Junkie, as well. This time, we bring you one of the best knockouts of 2019 – and all-time – when UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko knocked Jessica Eye out cold with a walk-off head kick finish at UFC 238 for her first successful title defense.

UFC.com’s Walker Van Wey sets the table:

Jessica Eye had one of the greatest climbs in recent memory when she went from four straight losses to flyweight title shot against Valentina Shevchenko. 2018 Comeback Fighter of the Year made it a little over a round before being on the wrong end of possibly the hardest head kick KO in the history of women’s MMA.

You can watch the fight footage in the video above. And check out a few more memorable moments below:
