Anyone needing proof that there's more to women's MMA than just Ronda Rousey should check out this stunning knockout by fellow American Christine Stanley.

It's already being labelled one of the year's best knockouts in a brutal sport, coming via a spinning heel kick straight off the opening bell of her fight against Katie Anita Runyan at the "Xplode Fight Series: Tidal Wave" card in California.

The win took Stanely's record to 3-1 with all of her victories coming via first round knockouts.

But none have been as spectacular as her latest effort which was officially recorded at five-seconds, leaving Runyan stiff-legged and out cold on the canvas.
