One thing that has always separated CagePotato from our MMA peers — you know, aside from our standing with the UFC, our limited staff, and our “It’s 12 o’clock somewhere” policy in regards to drinking in the office — is our commitment to bringing you readers the greatest knockout videos from across the globe, no matter how rare, unknown, or shoddy the footage itself is. But every now and again, you guys repay the favor and drop something like the above gem in our mailbox. It almost melts the ice from our cold, dead hearts to know you guys actually care. Almost.
In this case, CP reader Rob Fernandes passed along a video of an amatuer bout between Ian “The Korean” Park and Jose Jovel with the subject title “Awesome 5 second KO” and a description that read “I’m sure fans wouldn’t mind seeing a semi out of shape welterweight Frankenstein his opponent.” Naturally, we felt compelled to pay it forward, so check it out and let us know what you think of Jose’s jandiwork (see what I did there?).
Of course, this wasn’t the only vicious knockout to be shared with us recently, so join us after the jump for a video of the most vicious liver kick KO since McCarthy vs. Loiseau.
Although this fight apparently transpired at the Open Cup semifinal in Moscow last January, the video was uploaded just a couple of weeks ago. We have no idea who either fighter is, but judging by how long it took the dude in the blue shorts to get to his feet, we’re going to assume that he has yet to step back into the cage (ring) since. Like we said, unknown and rare is what we do.
