Former NBA No. 2 pick Darko Milicic faced off against Radovan Radojcic on Thursday his first match as a kickboxer.

According to The Associated Press, the 29-year-old Milicic suffered a cut on his leg in the first round that refused to clot, and a doctor was forced to stop the match during the second round, declaring Radojcic the winner.

Milicic had previously said his kickboxing career would be a one-off affair for charity, but after the fight in his native Serbia, the former Pistons center told reporters he would be back for more, saying, "The next time it will be better. I'm invincible."
