Three months ago, a fighter named Mike Garrett — or maybe Mike Garret, with one T, although neither name shows up on the Sherdog or MixedMartialArts.com databases — scored a “one-second knockout” for a “world record” that we sort of called bullshit on. Garrett/Garret was back in action at Warrior Challenge 15 in London on Friday, where he KO’d Jimi Animashaun in “3.5 seconds.” (Four seconds, officially.) Watch it above and note the following:
- Garrett starts celebrating before Animashaun even completes his descent to the mat, which is badass, but only adds to our uneasy feeling that these knockouts will eventually be exposed as a publicity stunt.
- “One ahfta de uvva…WAOW.” Love these British commentators.
- I also love how Animashaun is referred to as the “runner-up” in this fight. There are no losers at Warrior Challenge. That’s adorable.
- If you think that insane, half-coherent promoter Dave O’Donnell won’t be handling the post-fight interview, dressed like a mid-level crime boss from a Guy Ritchie film, then brother, you are dead wrong. O’Donnell seems like the kind of dude who would angrily accuse you of “taking the piss” while an expressionless Vinnie Jones stands behind him, holding a pitbull on a chain.
