What’s the best way to get brain damage in MMA? Getting KO’d twice in one fight. This is why boxers suffer so much more head trauma than MMA fighters. They get knocked out, revived, then knocked out again. Last I checked, getting punched in the head while concussed does not help in the retention of knowledge or even thought.
Nikolay Aleksakhin KO’d Rodrigo Cavalheiro at RCC 5 today and he got the magical unicorn knockout. Aleksakhin knocked Cavalheiro out in the first round and Cavalheiro faceplanted. He tried to get up and fell right back down. He was done, but once he got to his feet the referee thought he was good to go for round two.
Well, round two came and Cavalheiro was completely unconscious after being dropped by a right hook. Then, to ensure he drank his meals through a straw for the rest of his life, Aleksakhin punched Cavalheiro again on a follow-up strike.
