The he got knocked out. Islam came forward with one of those big punches and Martins counter with a beautiful, perfectly times right hand that landed right on Islam’s chin and put him down.
Martins followed up with a big hammer fist but the referee was already stepping in to stop it. It really was a beautiful punch. The fight looked to be going in Islam’s favor, with his pressure and bit punches, but ultimately it’s what led to his demise.
