ONE Championship: Lawrence Phillips knock outs opponent in 18 seconds

Lawrence Phillips just delivered a stunning knockout that could go down as one of the best of 2023.

Phillips completely outclassed opponent Ben Parker at a ONE Championship Friday Fights event in Bangkok with a highlight-reel slam that rendered Parker unconscious 18 seconds into the contest.

Watch the thrilling conclusion above.

Parker stepped in to bridge the distance after getting a kick to the body, which proved to be a fatal miscalculation as Phillips promptly secured a body hold and pulled Parker into the air.

Parker was forcefully thrown to the ground by Phillips, who then stood up as soon as he realised the battle was done.

Phillips' professional career began with two straight first-round finishes. He defeated Dan Trejo in his MMA debut last February by way of a first-round knockout.

He signed a six fight contract with ONE last May. He was (7-0) in his amateur career.

Parker, 40, was making his professional debut.
