Major props to our buddies over at MiddleEasy for passing along today’s entry in the Uriah Hall “Did He Died?” Head Kick Hall of Fame, which comes courtesy of last Friday’s STFC: Bad Blood event. In a lightweight contest pitting Vaughn Govia (dubbed Vaughn Goby in the above video) against Miguel “Mikey” Saenz, Govia decides after a few seconds of fight time that a switch from traditional to southpaw stance is in order. Saenz takes note of this and likewise decides that the best way to counter the switch is with a lazy jab. He is mistaken.
Govia responds by firing off a head kick that sends Saenz crashing to the canvas in what we shall now refer to as King slow-Mo, and just like that, another fantastic knockout in what has been a year already chock-full of them is born. Now someone go find a spatula to peel Saenz off the canvas.
