MMA Fail of the Year Candidate: Dude Knocks Self Out While Attempting Flying Kick

(Props: TheQuebecMMA via MiddleEasy)

This video comes to us from Empire Fight League 4 in Montreal on Saturday, in which a back-and-forth amateur scrap between Jeremie Capony and Dan Lariviere ended suddenly — and ridiculously — in the second round. Watch as Lariviere attempts the kind of flying switch-kick that would have made him a viral Internet superstar if it connected. Oh, if only. Capony sees it coming and slides out of the way, leaving Lariviere to drop to the mat and land on his arm and shoulder, which somehow knocks him out. Either that, or chi knockouts are real, and this is the no-touch-KO equivalent of Fedor vs. Arlovski. While you’re at it, you should also take a look at some of the other knockouts available over at Buzzer Beat, which is an awesome site that you should begin frequenting daily. Deal? Good.

    I think he was just playing dead out of embarrassment.

    He still went on to win the decision because they gave him credit for his own last minute takedown.

    Funniest part is the other guy's team celebrating and picking him up like he scored the TKO all on his own.

    It is an impossibility to knock yourself out by landing on ur fucking shoulder. This is some weird fix goin on here.Like in Midnight Sting (Diggstown) maybe they had his brother kidnapped but in reverse. They needed him to lose. Now his brother is gonna be strung up coz he couldnt throw a fight without drawing attention to himself.

    Who knew that "unconscious masturbator" could be topped?

    Danga - I am not sure I agree that this tops the unconscious stroker. As a matter of fact, this doesn't come close.

    Kofi Kingston would be incredibly disappointed at this guys attempt at trouble in paradise.

    What's bizarre is that Marcus *also* fell on his ass when he threw that stupid kick. Any flying kick that *requires* that you fall on your ass should not be attempted. Marcus was just lucky.

    You guys need to hurry up and get Arianny's new balcony nudes up here...good stuff.

    @ Kid We actually linked to them on our FB page over the weekend. As to be expected, the reaction was overtly negative. I don't understand people.
  13. KarmaAteMyCat Says:

    Tue, 02/21/12 - 09:28

    @JJ; Because she is only attractive from the torso up, She has a grandma butt and lets not kid ourselves she just wants attention.

  15. J. Jones Says:

    That is not the issue at hand, Karma. The issue is that men would complain about free nude pictures...........................ever. I don't factor a girl's personality into account when she is standing naked on a balcony for my viewing pleasure is all I'm saying.

    I'm not a fan of Arianny (check any of my posts for proof) but its still mma news (well, not really) and probably will bring traffic to the site. Plus, if everyone in Murica doesn't see her flat ass cheeks and fake cans without her permission, then the terrorists have in fact won.
  17. Fried Taco Says:

    Tue, 02/21/12 - 09:54

    Prob is that from the back, it looks like a guy standing there. That's when I start to complain... but you may have different criteria, JJ.

    My criteria is that is in fact a woman and 2.she has a pulse. I have broken the second rule a time or two but I stand by those guidelines, Taco.

    Speaking of Danga and being a flaming homo, your boy Akiyama is fighting this weekend. Did you replenish the Kleenex and baby oil? Well you better hurry!
  22. J. Jones Says:

    Tue, 02/21/12 - 12:10

    Did I just get called a homo by a guy who thereafter envisioned me rubbing one out, to a UFC fight nonetheless? When I was talking about enjoying seeing Arianny Celeste naked in the first place? SOMEONE HELP ME CONNECT THESE DOTS.
  23. RSparrow Says:

    Tue, 02/21/12 - 12:18

    No, you got called a homo because you said you couldn't stop staring at Akiyama's abs when you were writing an article about him. Get it together you leotard wearing, little jolly frolicking man.

    But Sparrow, he's SEXYAMA. That doesn't make me gay, it makes me human. Right? RIGHT?

    I did the same thing last year when I was shoveling snow. I went to kick some ice off of my bumper and pow...right there on my ass with the back of my head hitting the driveway. OUCH

    People are saying Arrianny doesn't have a nice ice? Come on, just because she doesn't have a big ghetto booty doesn't mean you don't find it attractive. No guy here wouldn't tap that.

    How embarrassing to knock your own ass out in a bout. I still laughed hard. Made me remember the time I flopped down on a plastic chair, it tipped backwards and a concrete decoration around the tree it was under knocked me cold for about 3 minutes. hee hee... Don't remember even sitting in the chair. I hope this poor guy lives this blunder down.
