Video: Renato Gomes flatlines opponent with spinning backfist in Shlemenko FC 3 headliner

Renato Gomes shocked Alexei Shurkevich in the main event of Alexander Shlemenko’s MMA promotion, finishing the fight with a roundhouse knockout.

The finish line came at 4:55 in the second round of the championship fight. Shurkevich did not foresee the upcoming blow and crashed his head into the tarpaulin at the headliner of Shlemenko FC 3.

Watch the finish video below.

Shlemenko FC, a promotion led by former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko, took place on Saturday in Omsk, Russia and was streamed online. Shlemenko, who has struggled on the international stage to go 5-1 since Bellator, has yet to show up for the promotion he leads.

Gomes entered the fight having lost two previous fights, both by decision, while Shurkevich won his last six fights. But the latter’s favorite status was quickly shaken when he was caught by an unexpected blow from the main event underdog.
