It was lights out in more ways than one at the PFC Gladiator VI event in Russia recently as one MMA fighter got knocked out just as the arena lighting began to go haywire.

Nauruz Dzamikov was facing off against 135lbs rival Khavazhi Mandiev in the city of Nalchik in the Caucasus when the lighting in the arena began flashing with around a minute to go in the first round.

 Amid the on-off darkness, Dzamikov caught Mandiev with a thunderous right hand, dropping him and then proceeding with a ground-and-pound assault, causing the referee to step in and wave off the fight.
