Want to impress your fellow MMA fans? When one of them mentions “this crazy one punch knockout I saw on YouTube” at some point today, tell them that the fight was from last night’s Legacy Fighting Championship 7 in Houston, Texas. It was Pete Spratt, who you totally remember from his pre-TUF 4 career, knocking out Antonio Flores. Then tell them that you’re some kind of author or something. That usually works for me.
Notice how Michael Schiavello says at the 1:13 mark that Flores’ chin is up a little too high for his liking? And Frank Trigg immediately posits that Pete’s about to exploit that? That’s called “foreshadowing”, in case you’re actually going to use that whole author thing. The forty year old Pete Spratt then placed a well timed left hook to the dome of Antonio Flores, and that was all she wrote. Pete Spratt may only be 23-20 in his MMA career, but as indicated by the 21 stoppages to his credit, he is always fun to watch.
If you really want to walk the fine line between hardcore MMA fan and downright loathsome MMA hipster, you can talk about how you preferred watching Carlo Prater’s kimura victory over TUF 9 alumnus Cameron Dollar. But you’re on your own for a video of that.
