It was a tough night for Filipino MMA veteran Eric "The Natural" Kelly
Filipino mixed martial arts veteran Eric "The Natural" Kelly absorbed his sixth-straight defeat after getting knocked out by "Pretty Boy" Kwon Won Il of South Korea in the first round of their featherweight bout at ONE: Roots of Honor, Friday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Kwon landed a right straight flush on Kelly's jaw that sent the Filipino crashing down to the mat.
The South Korean finished Kelly off with some brutal ground and pound before the referee stepped in to stop the bout.
All that in just 19 seconds.
Kelly, once considered as one of the best homegrown Filipino mixed martial artists, fell to 12-7 in his career after his sixth-straight stoppage loss.
