Niko Price has earned one of the craziest knockout wins of 2019, with a stunning up-kick KO of James Vick at UFC Tampa.

With barely 90 seconds gone in their welterweight showdown, Vick looked to be in a good position, with Price on his back on the canvas.

In his welterweight debut after moving up from the 155-pound division, Vick stood up to reposition himself just as Price let fly with an up-kick.

Price's heel connected with stunning force to Vick's jaw and the Texan was in serious trouble.

The Florida native landed some ground and pound before referee Herb Dean could put a stop to the action, with Vick looking seriously worse for wear. 

Check out the stunning finish below.

You could actually hear Vick's jaw snapping, allegedly.

"Fighting's not a technique, just fight, be a dog, get in it," a fired-up Price said afterwards.

"I'm here for opportunities. I want to go as high as y'all let me.

"I want them belts, let's do it."

The win is Price's sixth finish since 2016 - the second most in the 170-pound division.

It takes his record to 6-3 (1NC) in the UFC and was a big bounce back fight after losing via second round knockout to Geoff Neal at UFC 240 in July.

Meanwhile, Vick's UFC career is probably over after suffering his fourth loss in succession.

Three of those defeats have come via knockout, including highlight reel stoppage defeats to Justin Gaethje and New Zealand's Dan Hooker.
