Amazing Backflip Breaks Fighter’s Spirit

(Props: Druskee27 on the UG)

So it’s late in the fight and you haven’t been able to break your opponent down mentally?  No problem, dog.  Just bust a backflip to start the third round, making sure to stick the landing perfectly, and he’ll instantly lose his will to fight.  Then you go on the attack and wait for the referee to get bored enough to stop the fight.  Looks like someone may have finally discovered the secret to beating Fedor.  Better start drilling those flips, Josh Barnett.

Of course, if you can’t pull it off during the fight, it’s bizarrely more impressive to do it after you’ve been choked out.  See what we mean after the jump.

Ok.. there is only ONE excuse for the first video.. he HAD to have been paid to lose throw that fight..

There's no other explanation for that..

He was turning around already when the first shot landed, didn't even look hurt by the other shots, and then just drops..

Eh.. makes for a great video, though..

I just rewatched these, pretty good finds - I don't think they're stage - just amateurs - i'm extremely amateur, but was surprised on how quick a guillotine can actually put someone out when just messin around with my friends

pretty hilarious that the guy does just give up after seeing how much energy the other had - shows just how mental the fight game is - i go to a bunch of little shows around here and you always are seeing these jokesters just quitting because they're tired or afraid

that second video has to be staged. The guy on top puts his head in the choke, and helps the other guy close his arm around his neck. What crap

Nothing beats Crazy Horse's suicide backflip off of the cage.

That first fight was stopped about 30 seconds too late. People like that are going to give MMA a bad name...

What a strange couple videos.. is it just me or did the choke in the second one look extremely loose? Look at the 40 second mark... he's like "no I don't want to pull my head out here I'll put it back in for you.. choke me!" wtf?? Are both of these fights jokes or something?? I don't get it...

Also if the 1st vid was from the 3rd round.. how did it get that far? Did the guy that won forget that he was aloud to punch until round 3??

I'm baffled.

That was Sick!

Kaibo - I was thinking the same thing. I mean, give a guy a chance, but 15 seconds of punch bag is a bit ridiculous...

Judo - My thoughts exactly.

1st fight wasn't a fight

Why be a fighter if you are going out like that ?
Judo Im Right- June 24, 2009 at 10:08 am
damn! If that second dude can do a backflip then so can I! It's time to start drilling
Kaibo- June 24, 2009 at 9:44 am
God damn! That first fight was stopped about 15 seconds late.

Kind of reminded me of the Fedor vs. Randleman fight. . . just more Haggard
