Illegal Knockout of the Day: Chan Sung Jung’s Spinning Backfist

(Skip to the 2:35 mark for the good stuff. Props: MMA Share)

A spinning backfist knockout is a lot like an open container of alcohol.  It’s really great in the places where it’s allowed, but a good way to have your night ruined in the places where it isn’t.  Unfortunately for "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung, the "It’s Showtime" event in Prague is the kind of place that frowns upon such displays of 360-degree backfistedness, even if the Czechs don’t exactly have their own word for it.  Guess we’ll have to add it to our list.

The sad thing is, to us it’s a highlight reel knockout.  To them, it’s cause for a disqualification.  Much like gun laws in the U.S., the legality of various strikes can change just as soon as you cross the border into a new place.  That’s why you always call ahead first.  I learned that lesson the hard way after my soccer kicks and head stomps did not go over well at my cousin’s wedding in Arizona.  I’m just saying, why even have an open bar if you don’t want to have any fun?

    I can't imagine why this would be illegal, especially in a kickboxing match. Why was the ref moving him around like that after he got KOed? The guys neck could be broken, moving him around probably ins't the best thing to do....I think that's health 101....

    I've heard cheaters never win but I'd rather lose than get a trophy and the cerebral damage that came with it.

    You could totally tell the other guy didn't even concieve of a backfist coming at him. That probably was the Korean's only chance to win considering how the fight was going up until that happened. But that cocky bastard had it coming. Anybody else notice how he was all showboating and shit? I woulda ro-shambo'd his ass, as soon as went for a high kick.

    Backhanded strikes are not allowed in boxing or kickboxing, but are allowed in thai boxing and mma(obviously)
