WATCH: Epic UFC 199 opener ends with suitably vicious knockout

What a way to kick off UFC 199!

An epic lightweight war for the ages opened up the Fight Pass exclusive prelims for the stacked UFC 199 event.

Polo Reyes extended his win-streak to three by  stopping the very durable Dong Hyun Kim (the other one) in the third round after a grueling back and forth battle.

Both fighters dug deep eating trading heavy shots in the first stanza and by some minor miracle, they both managed to make it to the second round standing.

The fight ended in the third when Reyes delivered a punishing coup de grace on the exhausted Kim who just simply couldn't take any more damage.

It was a right haymaker that sent the Korean crashing down to the canvas in a heap, which was swiftly followed up by another heavy punch before the referee intervened to stop the fight at the 1:52 mark of the final round.
