The knockout is the grandest part of MMA. There are varying types of knockouts that we all prefer. However, the slow fall to faceplant may be the best.
Seriously, I could watch KO’s like this all day long. It’s not because violence is super awesome, rather, it’s the skill that it takes to do that to another human being.
In this video, Qingxiang Zhu is swarming his opponent, Bo Yan, with a flurry of punches. While going backwards, Yan managed to catch the chin of Zhu and the lights went off. The precision, strength and timing that people have to do this, is staggering to me.
Watch this stellar KO from yesterday’s ‘King Fighting Championship’.
