HEXAGONE MMA 6: Dean Garnett knocks out Miguel Haro in 20 seconds to mark octagon comeback

Dean Garnett needed just 20 seconds in the opening round to beat Miguel Haro as he marked his octagon return in sensational style.

The British MMA veteran has been out of competitive action since May 2018 when he defeated former Cage Warriors champion Dominique Wooding. 

Since then, Garnett suffered a broken jaw and also committed a lot of his time to coaching fighters at his Aspire Combat Sports Academy - including UFC's Muhammad Mokaev.

Nevertheless, the 34-year-old still has unfulfilled ambitions inside the octagon and is targeting a shot at a title.

His hopes of becoming a champion were bolstered on Sunday night as he demolished Miguel Haro inside 20 seconds at HEXAGONE MMA 6 in Paris.

Fellow Liverpool-based fighter Chris Fishgold was also expected to compete in the co-main event, though the former UFC star missed weight.

In the headliner, Lithuania's Ernesta Kareckaite took incumbent champion Laetitia Blot the distance to secure a split decision victory and the HEXAGONE MMA Flyweight belt.

Elsewhere, Romain Debienne impressed with a first round knockout win over Victor Verchere.

Nora Cornolle enjoyed a convincing victory over Priscila de Souza, producing a TKO after two minutes and 25 seconds of the second round.

Earlier, French Youtube star Matthieu Duclos delighted the home crowd as he dominated Tobiasz Lewandowski to triumph by TKO.
