Edward Kelly knocks Meul out cold

By Ivan Saldajeno

PASAY--Edward Kelly put a blemish to Meas Meul's erstwhile unscathed MMA record with a huge knockout at One: Global Superheroes at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday night.

It was actually a lucky strike for the younger of the Kelly Brothers as the impact of a high kick attempt was enough to send Meul out cold.

Fireworks quickly lit up just as the fight began as both fighters went at it in just a zap.

Kelly, however, found an opening to land a 1-2 punch attack coupled by a high kick. Meul appeared to have kept the kick in check, but his head was hit by Kelly's knee that eventually knock him out in just 21 seconds.

Kelly moved up to 10-4, while Meul fell to 6-1.

Kelly's older brother Eric is set to face Rafael Nunes later Friday night.
