ICYMI, Niko Price’s incredibly creative KO of Randy Brown

If you are an avid MMA fan, you know it’s damn near impossible to KO someone from your back with punches. Upkicks, sure. But fisticuffs, no way. Newcomer, Niko Price usually finds interesting and creative ways to beat his opponents. Last night in Boise, he once again dug into his bag of tricks and pulled off the improbable.

How he executed the KO was no accident either. While Price made it seem like he may have been going for a leg lock, he trapped one of Brown’s arms. With one of his feet, he had Brown’s head secure. This left Brown wide open for hammer fist strikes from Price. Price knocked Brown out and handed him the first KO of his career.

This kind of knockout is such a rarity and when executed, it’s incredible.

Niko Price with the viscous rear naked choke in Charlotte

Niko Price came back from his most recent loss this past October, with a beautiful rear naked choke victory over George Sullivan today.

Price began his career at a perfect 11-0 but ran into the surging Vicente Luque in his last fight. He looked to get back into the win column today at UFC on FOX from Charlotte, against George Sullivan.

It was a back-and-forth fight until round two, when Price took Sullivan’s back. He set Sullivan up by punching from the back and when Sullivan tried to stand up, Price sunk in the choke. Excellent display of skill and technique by Mr Price.
