Must See: The Greatest Knockouts in Amateur MMA History

ix3623 is a ridiculously prolific editor of MMA/sports videos that are unmatched in their ability to waste large blocks of your time. While checking out ix’s new two-part "compilation of interesting mix martial arts facts" series today, we noticed the above tribute to sick knockouts at local shows, and it might be his most important work yet. First, a point of clarification: "amateur" here means "shot with a shitty camera." (We definitely recognized a few smaller pro leagues in the mix.) But that’s just a minor detail, because my goodness is this stuff hardcore. These are not TKO stoppages. This is nine and a half minutes of guys getting knocked dead-asleep in horrible fashion. Enjoy! We also recommend ix3623′s unsportsmanlike behavior megamix, the 30-part (!) funniest moments in MMA series, and this unrelated but compelling highlight reel.

Is it just me or is there steel directly beneath these cages? Getting knocked out like crazy from tiny drops.

Two things I tell all my students......Hands up, chin down.

I hope that James "Mumbles" Toney suffers a similar kick to the chops as many of these dudes did. ....NowatI'msayn?

Some of my typically astute observations on said video:

- Toe curled, stiff-spined KO's are as pleasing to the eye of the viewer as they are damaging to the fine motor skills of the recipient.

- An altitude of five feet above the mat is probably as good a time as any to abandon the closed guard.

- A Fu Man Chu 'stache loses it's awesomeness when you're glass-eyed and slack jawed for more than fifteen seconds.

- If you clean up the audio and drop the soundtrack, I'm willing to bet you can hear somebody's mama scream "my baby, oh God he killed my baby!" at least once.

I have infinite respect for fighters who don't take needless shots at OBVIOUSLY knocked out opponents.
Not to mention it just looks cooler to walk away calm and cool than to drop 10 hammer fists on an unconscious man and then run around posturing and screaming.

does anyone know who is the recipient of that very first KO and if the guy is alive? I've seen that one a few too many times

That very first KO looks like a homicide. Amateur mma, like amateur porn, is much more cringe-worthy than the pro level stuff. But also, like amateur porn, has equally great finishes...even if the camera work is shoddy and the participants often look like they fell out of a greyhound on their way to a monster truck rally.

lmao at the ref @ 6:39. Shorts, sneakers, no latex gloves. Then just bends over and squints at the guy from a distance. The most amateurish part of this video by far.
fatbellyfrank- August 12, 2010 at 3:44 pm
Fuck, some pretty brutal shit right there, some serious asshattery from some of these guys, how many times you wanna tee off on someones limp body, sheesh

Bob Arum probably saw this exact video and came to the conclusion that MMA is full of gay nazi's.

You can't see the ninjy chops Rex! Wait...unless you're a ninjy!
spermburger- August 12, 2010 at 3:08 pm
The asshole factor is high in this video. So much white trash, so many guys who take needless cheap shots after the other guy is KO'd, so many guys being ripped off by refs and then getting pissed off at the ref.
ReX13- August 12, 2010 at 3:05 pm
judy chops?

as long as they don't try a ninjy chop.
floppytall- August 12, 2010 at 3:01 pm
Holy shit there were some brutal and ridiculous punches/judy chops to the throat and neck in there.
spermburger- August 12, 2010 at 3:00 pm
Damn, this was fucking sweet..

This is like that time I found an old beatup vhs tape containing a compilation of hardcore underground dungeon gangbangs behind the police station when I was 14.
Still 6 hours of the nastiest shit I've ever seen, even after the internets.
jimbonics- August 12, 2010 at 2:52 pm
Videos like this make me glad I smoke weed and drink beer and not.. you know... fight things.

Although I'm always ever curious as to what the Land of Wind and Ghosts must be like.

Yep, there's your answer fish-bulb.
Kid Clam Curtains- August 12, 2010 at 2:37 pm
Holy shit some of those are brutal.
Mr_Misanthropy- August 12, 2010 at 2:19 pm
...Aaaaaannnnd I will punch your limp corpse an extra fifteen times in the neck.
Treebs- August 12, 2010 at 2:10 pm
The guy at the :57 mark has a worse chin than Chuck Liddell....KO by hammer fists, great way to go out
