Former Glory heavyweight kickboxing contender Arkadiusz Wrzosek made a big impression on his professional MMA debut as he scored a TKO finish in the main event of KSW 73 in Warsaw, Poland.

The big Pole claimed the stoppage victory in his first outing in the small gloves as he finished fellow ex-kickboxer Tomasz Sarara late in the third round to kick off his career in fine style.

Wrzosek’s victory capped off a spectacular night as the fighters brought the heat throughout the evening.

Most notably, Ukraine’s Bohdan Gnidko produced the performance of the night as he stunned Damian Piwowarczyk by knockout in just five seconds to register the fastest knockout in KSW history.

There were also knockout finishes for Radoslaw Paczuski, who finished Jason Radcliffe, and Dominik Humberger, who defeated Borys Borkowski.

There were also a pair of impressive submission stoppages as Pascal Hintzen and Carl McNally locked up rear-naked chokes to secure victory over Patryk Likus and Milosz Melchert, respectively.

Just two of the nine fights required the judges on a night that flew by. Check out the full official results below.
