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

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 realized he had hurt his shoulder.
