Knockout of the Day: Pete Spratt’s Spinning Backfist as Time Expires at AFC 2

Skip to the 19:55 mark of the video for the KO. Props:

Imagine you wake up from a devistating spinning backfist knockout. You’re already pretty confused as it is, and now you’re finding out that you lost your fight by…unanimous decision? That’s how it feels to be Daniel Acacio, who met Pete Spratt at Amazon Forest Combat 2 last night.

Before anyone else points it out, you’re right: this technically isn’t a knockout. Spratt, who is no stranger to winning Knockout of the Day honors, landed the spinning backfist that caught Acacio right on the chin as the horn sounded for the end of the fight. So technically, this isn’t a knockout, and the fight went to the judges’ scorecards, who all saw the fight in Spratt’s favor.  So yes, this is technically “Unanimous Decision of the Day”- because I’m sure it matters to Acacio’s remaining brain cells and all.

By the way, if you’re looking for a more productive way to spend April Fools Day than threatening to delete your blog, check out the rest of the card. Amazon Forest Combat 2 also saw a rematch between Matt Horwich and Thales Leites, Patrick Cote knock out Gustavo Machado and Murilo Bustamante edge out Dave Menne. Enjoy.

Spratt totally baited him into that. Complete veteran move. BTW, I thought Pete Spratt was dead.

Yeah, he did. You could totally tell he was setting him up for it big time.

You thought Pete Spratt was dead and I kept thinking I was looking for Pete Sell. I was like when did Pete Sell undergo pigments transformation therapy.

19:55 is too late; 19:50 is adequate. Definitely a contender for K.O. of the year in my books.

Good grief. Why are nested comments hidden? Why is the log-in form in a modal window? Don't get me wrong, the new comments are a great improvement but these two aspects could do with tweaking. Also, WordPress comes equipped with a "Recent comments" widget. Go ahead, stick it in the sidebar or a widgetized area in the footer, you know want to.

I think thats the first time I've seen "Skip to the 19:55 mark" but that was awesome!
