Melbourne, Australia: James Moontasri used a spinning back kick followed by a back fist to finish off Anton Zafir.

UFC 193: Rousey vs. Holm was held on November 15, 2015 at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. Anton Zafir vs. James Moontasri took place on the preliminary card which aired on UFC Fight Pass.

Zafir wanted to take Moontasri to the mat early and was successful in doing so, but could not keep his opponent grounded.  After working his way back to a standing position with assistance from the cage, Moontasri began looking to land hard kicks on an already tired Zafir.

The finish came when Moontasri landed a spinning back kick flush on the ribs of his opponent, following it up with a spinning back fist in the same motion that sent Zafir crashing to the mat.  The fight was halted almost immediately after the blows.

James Moontasri advances to 9-3, while Zafir drops to 7-2 with the defeat.
