Good afternoon, Potato Nation. How’s your Monday going? Well, it’s about to get even worse, because everyone’s favorite kilt-wearing former UFC welterweight, Marcus Davis, nearly met his maker this past weekend, and since we had to sit through it, so shall you. After opting out of his Zuffa contract the hard way at UFC 125, “The Irish Hand Grenade” would go 3-1 in various promotions before facing off against Mark Casserly in a kickboxing match.
Now, Davis has suffered some of the most brutal knockouts in the history of the sport (*cough* Ben Saunders *cough*), but this may be the cherry on the blood flavored ice cream sundae. We can’t remember the last time that a kick turned its recipient into a human rocking chair, but we’ll remember this KO for years to come, that’s for sure. Seriously, it’s like that scene in Bad Santa when the midget from Me, Myself, and Irene gets punched in the nuts and falls head over heels, except not nearly as hilarious.
We’re not doctors, but we think this might be the fight that prompts Davis to call it a career. As you can see, it took him more than a few minutes before he was able to regain his composure, and sometimes that is all it takes for a fighter to reconsider his line of work, especially at Davis’ age. Regardless of the decision he may or not make within the next couple weeks, we’d like to take a moment here at CP to thank Davis for his contributions to the sport…
…Alrighty then, now join us below to watch another ferocious head-kick KO from this past weekend, courtesy of our friends over at MiddleEasy. Don’t blink, because it happens just over five seconds into the fight.
(Skip to the 5:45 mark for the beginning of the end.)
Remember that ridiculous come from behind victory we featured last week? You know, the one where “Diamond” Dan Pauling absorbed approximately 1 million punches before submitting his opponent? In case you do, meet fellow SHINDO New Breed fighter Jack “The Flash” Gooderham, who took the much easier path to CP glory by crushing his opponent with a brilliant head kick just six seconds into the opening round of their May 5th scrap. With the win, he improves to 8-0 as a pro, and 1-0 as a CagePotato certified badass. We’ll leave it up to him to decide which one is more important.
