Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Knockout of the Day: Add Another Contender to the ‘Falling Tree’ HOF List

As with the double KO and the “lawn chair” KO, we were the first to discover the “falling tree” KO before it began to spread across the MMA blogosphere faster than the Motaba virus. Today’s case study comes to us from the Mohawk Valley Community College Gym in Utica, NY of all places, at an event dubbed “CNY Battle Ground 5.” According to the ticket purchasing site, the event saw “MMA fighters from around the state square off in the cage,” because as we all know, MMA is kinda sorta legal in New York.

Although the heavy gloves, head gear, and shin pads lead us to believe this was some sort of kickboxing exhibition, the extra gear does make the eight second knockout seem all the more impressive. The man behind the vicious, Cro Copian head kick is Bob Reese, otherwise known the baddest man to ever walk out to a Rihanna song. Come on Bob, throw on some Chris Brown if you want to do some REAL damage.

Jose Aldo still baddest man to walk out to a Rihanna song. Cant double up on the tunes. If I am correct, Jones and Davis both came out to Rihanna jams.

I could not Come out to Jay-Z and Rihanna because that's what I did my last fight. Cant double up on the tunes. If I am correct, Jones and Davis both came out to Rihanna jams. Maybe Davis stole it from me!

@Bill Clinton; First off I love you and you are my favorite president. Secondly this is not the only place for MMA in NY as they have Raging Wolf Productions which I was a part of in December of 2011.

Notice the Harley Davidson sponsorship for these Florida amateurs. I wonder if they got to keep their trunks after the fight?
.......................................................................Does Harley still sponsor the UFC?

This more than likely an MMA event, just modified for amateurs. This is the only way amateurs can fight MMA in Florida as well.

Imagine if he was NOT wearing head gear. Dudes head would have ended up in the fifth row.

If you do a falling tree knockout and no one is around to see it, does anyone scream "oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!"?
