Watch Robin Catalan faceplant Gustavo Balart with brutal head kick at ONE Championship 102

Gustavo Balart is known for his incredible chin, but he couldn’t take this head kick from Robin Catalan.

At “ONE Championship: Masters of Fate” on Friday in Manila, Philippines, Catalan (9-6 MMA) blasted Balart (8-4 MMA) with a massive head kick in the second round, instantly knocking out his opponent cold and sending him face first to the canvas, in front of his hometown crowd.

Take a look (via Twitter):

Catalan was able to get back to the win column, rebounding from his first round knockout loss to Pongsiri Mitsatit in May, whereas the 4-foot-11 Balart suffered his third straight defeat.
