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.
