Walker (17-3) earned his third stoppage victory in four months with a spectacular flying knee, stopping Cirkunov just 36 seconds into their bout.


It means the UFC excitement machine has joined an exclusive list of fighters to win their first three UFC bouts in first round stoppages.


The entertaining fighter then purposely dropped face-first onto the canvas to begin his breakdancing move.

Walker quickly stopped and rolled over in pain when he realised he had hurt his shoulder.
