Rousey vs. Kaufman: Memorable Moments from Strikeforce in San Diego

Adlan Amagov had something to prove on Saturday night.

Coming off of his first loss since 2008, Amagov looked to get back in the win column in his fourth Strikeforce bout, this time against Keith "KO Kid" Berry. He wasted practically no time in doing so, getting a very quick TKO victory in less than one minute of action.

After landing a spinning body kick that clearly caught Berry off guard, he immediately followed up with a push kick to the front of Berry's knee, buckling it in the process.

The kick, an uncommon strike which is actually illegal under the unified rules of mixed martial arts, caused Berry to fall to the ground where Amagov landed some punches before referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the contest.

A disappointed Berry immediately stood up after the stoppage and began protesting, but it was too late.

2012 just has not been Herb Dean's best year of refereeing.
