Local fighter Mzwandile Hlongwa set the Extreme Fighting Championship scene alight at the weekend with a “killer blow” at EFC75 in Capet Town.

Nicknamed “Shakebone”, the Durban local delivered what is being touted as the Knockout-of-the-Year after unleashing an unstoppable spinning elbow on Torbjørn Madsen, a Norwegian.

A commentator on the fight summed the feelings all round up quite well:  “Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, what just happened?

“One-Two! That was a massive shot. He set it up with a punch and he fell down like a piece of lumber.”

It didn’t take long for Twitter to christen the shot “Hellbow” in reference to his potent elbow.

Madsen was taken to hospital, but was discharged.
