Knockout of the Day: Jay Hieron vs. Jason High

(Props: Bloody Elbow)

Originally scheduled for the undercard of Affliction’s Day of Reckoning show last Saturday, the welterweight bout between IFL/UFC vet Jay Hieron and 6-0 prospect Jason High had to be postponed to the very end of the lineup due to time constraints — as in, directly after Fedor vs. Andrei, when 80% of the audience was out the door, the pay-per-view broadcast had cut out, and nearly everybody with a videocamera had already moved over to the post-event press conference. Fortunately, Inside MMA was able to show the fight on their Friday episode. And it looks like Emelianenko’s mid-air knockout of Arlovski wasn’t the only KO from Day of Reckoning that you’ll eventually be seeing on "Best of 2009" lists. After about a minute of settling in, Hieron dashed in with a crushing right hook which floored High, then landed three or four uppercuts while High was already dead asleep. The Thoroughbred lets out a battle cry after being pulled off his opponent, which we’d imagine is partly joy over the highlight-reel victory, and partly relief that he finally gets to go home.

@ Drew

This was Hieron's first, first round Knockout... so he was probably waiting for High to tap out.

Were those extra 10 punches necessary? At some point, Hieron must have realized that his opponent was out...

That was an EA Fight Night knockout... KO punch, head bounces off the rope.. right hook, left hook, right hook, left hook

Those follow up shots were missing for the most part. I blame this one on Jay trying to prove himself to be a legitimate contender with all the footage of GSP deep-balling him resurfacing for UFC 94. But when you miss two right uppercuts and the guy's still limp, it's safe to assume the fight's over.

herb dean's retarded ass lets fighters get pinged and ponged for a few more seconds before stopping it, don't worry its what he does, he is there to protect the fighters and to do things refs are supposed to do

good knock out, lindland in a neck brace and arlovski's face plant were better

Another excellent display of poor match making for Afflicted. All bouts too one-sided to be interesting. yaaawwwwnnn

How come it took the ref so long to get over there & stop it? Looks like he was over in the opposite corner, having a Mt. Dew or something.

Nice. I was wondering why they didn't mention this fight at first, glad I got to catch the replay.

Hey Ben, I have an idea. You should do an auto-redirecter to the worst case of porn pop-ups for anyone that posts any variation of "First!"

that was just beautiful..
he took all the time he needed to get his range and stuff and then BAM! ...lights out.

kind of a shame though, 'cause High looked like a beast when he was actually doing something..
