Jonas Mågård shocks the world with brutal KO at Oktagon MMA 41

In a destructive performance at Oktagon MMA 41, Jonas Mågård proved that he’s not just a trash talker but a genuine superstar.

On April 15, the promotion arrived at the Home Credit Arena in Liberec, Czech Republic, for an incredible show. After months of back and forth, 8000 fans packed into the venue to witness the culmination of one of the biggest rivalries in the history of the organisation, and they couldn’t have asked for a more devastating main event.

Jonas Mågård stuns Gustavo Lopez at Oktagon MMA 41

In the lead-up to the fight, many suspected that Lopez might have too much for his opponent. With top-level grappling and a fantastic stint in the UFC to his name, it looked like an incredibly tall order for the Dane. However, as Mågård has throughout his career, he tore up the script.

As soon as his nemesis finished Filip Macek to claim the interim title, the official champion knew what he had to do. With another man claiming he was the rightful King of the 135-pound division, Mågård was left enraged, chomping at the bit to get in the cage and leave his adversary flat out on the canvas.

And with the weight of the world on his shoulders, he marched out to the battlefield and produced the performance of his life.

Showcasing his laser-like striking, the 30-year-old dropped his opponent in the second round, and while Lopez tried to fight on, ‘The Shark’ lived up to his nickname, pouncing on his prey like he smelled blood in the water.

Consequently, with Lopez taking a series of shots on the ground, the referee jumped in, calling a halt to the contest and solidifying Mågård as the rightful number one. But he wasn’t the only fighter that left the fans cheering from the rooftops.
