"@cbdmd.usa exceeded my expectations and blew my mind…”

Amongst the hundreds of KO’s in 2018, Yair Rodriguez, Mexican professional mixed martial artist, took home the No. 1 spot for the UFC’s best knockout. cbdMD LLC, a member of the Level Brands, Inc. (NYSE American: LEVB) family of companies, sponsors Rodriguez in the Octagon.

Voted by CBS Sports’ panel of experts, Rodriguez’s finish against “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung on November 10, 2018 is being described as: “…a knockout so jaw-dropping that it had many calling it quite possibly the best finish in the history of the promotion [UFC].” The featherweight contest was “an absolute war,” and ended with Rodriguez’s perfect execution of a no-look back elbow as the final buzzer in the fifth round sounded.

Rodriguez took to Instagram and said, “Since my fight I have been sharing some photos of my healing process… After the fight I was pretty sore, my feet, nose and elbow were pretty swollen. This is the best part; I wanted to see how good CBD [cbdMD] was in general cause it was one of the few times I ever used before and after one of my fights. [cbdMD] @cbdmd.usa exceeded my expectations and blew my mind…”
