Jung Hyun Lee Just Begs to Get KTFO
CagePotato would never condone a fighter continuing to assault his opponent after the fight has been stopped. That being said, the only person we really feel sorry for in this video is the referee, who was inadvertently (we hope) knocked unconscious in the post-bell melee.
The taunting seen from Jung Hyun Lee in his face-off with Takeo Shiina is something you’d expect to see from 1) an asshole, and 2) someone with enough experience to back their shit up. A quick trip to Sherdog confirms that Lee is one of these things. His staredown featured vigorous head bobbing followed by an insincere kiss—nothing we haven’t seen before in MMA, really.
The legal portion of the bout lasts thirty seconds, up until the point where Shiina connects with a left and sends Lee cascading to the canvas. The knock out is obvious, but Shiina doesn’t feel that Lee has paid in full for his hubris and he follows him to the ground where he continues the beating. The ref tries to intervene but ends up eating punches and knees for his effort, and Shiina continues to abuse his unconscious opponent until pulled away by his corner.
Stay classy, guys.
