Following a devastating knockout win over Thomas Salmon at Stellar Fights 48, Maryland-born kickboxing stud, Taylor “Pretty Boy” McMahan improved his MMA record to an impressive 2-0.

The scene was set for McMahan to seize his moment. A sold-out crowd with the main event spotlight for the promotion he’s fought most of his amateur career on. McMahan’s fan base showed out in numbers for the “Pretty Boy’s” big moment and within 45 seconds flat, the night was his.

“People are going to think because of the way you look and the way you act and the way you carry yourself, that you can’t get busy,” McMahan explains about his in-ring moniker, “Pretty Boy.” Continuing, “that’s just how I am bro. I’m a grinder, dude!”

It was a quick night of work, indeed for McMahan as he went on the attack early. “Pretty Boy” put Salmon on his heels quickly in the first round before a single left hook would sway the contest completely. Upon landing the left hook, Salmon crashed to the canvas, visibly hurt. McMahan wasted no time pouncing on his injured prey, landing several hammer-fists before the referee would intervene, calling a halt to the contest.

McMahan will get back in action for his first run at an MMA championship on March 26th as he vies for Maverick MMA’s lightweight championship title as he takes on the strong wrestler that is Joshua Ugalde.
