An MMA fighter making his amateur debut managed to score one of the most ridiculous knockouts we have ever seen.
Some fighters in this sport peak during their initial title run before dropping off in a sometimes very sudden fashion. Others battle through some mid-career obscurity before flourishing in their later years but for one man making his amateur MMA debut at Shock N Awe 26 in Britain, his peak may well have arrived in what was his very first taste of combat.
Ollie Flint made his debut this week, taking on Aaron Gray in what should have been a good opportunity to feel things out as a newcomer to the mixed martial arts game but what happened instead was simply breathtaking.
To have to audacity to try, never mind land a capoeira kick like this in any setting, be it first fight, fifth fight or fiftieth fight deserves some applause and with the year now coming to a close, do not be surprised to see this stunning KO mentioned among the very best finishing blows that 2017 has had to offer.
I don’t think anything needs to be said. Watch the knockout blow using the link below.
