Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Knockout of the Day: This 10-Second Wheel-Kick K.O. Is Straight-Up Barboza-esque

(Props: NEFMMA via MiddleEasy)

Last month at New England Fights: Fight Night III in Lewiston, Maine, Young’s MMA product Bruce Boyington added his name to the regional MMA knockout hall of fame with a spinning wheel-kick that snored up Keegan Hornstra in just 10 seconds. After his devastating victory, Boyington gets up in the camera’s face and shouts “You seen that befoah? You seen that befoah?” Well, yeah, we have — but that doesn’t make it any less impressive, Bruce.

Speaking of which: Edson Barboza‘s wheel-kick knockout of Terry Etim has now made the Final Four of ESPN’s 2012 ESPY Awards voting for “Best Play of the Year,” where it’s up against some college bullshit that I’ve never even heard of. Vote here and help Barboza get the recognition he deserves.

@manutdfan - not one known to be easily impressed - I'd not want to be in brawl over a thumb wrestle match gone bad and have your boy bust out one of the wheel-kicks in my direction.

Depending on which site, he's 3-2 or 2-2-1, as his second win, the opponent tried to get it overturned, as Bruce dribbled his head into the cage edge, and he got cut.

@manutdfan - what's Bruces fighting record?

Matty, glad others here were able to see it live. He's going to be in the September card, along with Ryan Sanders, Ray Wood, and a few other Young's MMA guys.

Yeah, it was sick-nasty. And for you stalkers, I'm the cornerman with the hat and Union Jack shorts on.

Being there in person(and also being one of Bruce's cornermen), I can't put into words how nasty that kick was. Soooo nasty
