And Here’s That Insane Spinning-Back-Kick KO From Last Night’s Episode of TUF… [VIDEO]

The UFC was so damn proud of the Edson Barboza-esque knockout that Uriah Hall laid on Adam Cella during last night’s episode of TUF, that they actually made it available on YouTube along with some extended aftermath footage. And come to think of it, I can’t think of a knockout from the show’s history that was more impressive — or more brutal — than this one, especially considering how long Cella was unconscious. Cella did in fact go to the hospital for a CAT scan when he woke up, but it looks like the black dude in the ambulance that they kept showing in promos was footage from a different fight. (Could be the next one, actually.)

Hall’s win makes him an iron-clad front-runner for the $25,000 Knockout of the Season prize, and puts Team Sonnen up 2-0 in the preliminary round. A couple other notable moments from episode 3…

Knockout of the Day: This 10-Second Wheel-Kick K.O. Is Straight-Up Barboza-esque


(Props: NEFMMA via MiddleEasy)

Last month at New England Fights: Fight Night III in Lewiston, Maine, Young’s MMA product Bruce Boyington added his name to the regional MMA knockout hall of fame with a spinning wheel-kick that snored up Keegan Hornstra in just 10 seconds. After his devastating victory, Boyington gets up in the camera’s face and shouts “You seen that befoah? You seen that befoah?” Well, yeah, we have — but that doesn’t make it any less impressive, Bruce.

Speaking of which: Edson Barboza‘s wheel-kick knockout of Terry Etim has now made the Final Four of ESPN’s 2012 ESPY Awards voting for “Best Play of the Year,” where it’s up against some college bullshit that I’ve never even heard of. Vote here and help Barboza get the recognition he deserves.

Savage Knockout of the Day: Jordan Mein def. Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos Via Hellstorm of Standing Elbows

If Strikeforce gave out performance bonuses like their big brothers at the UFC, the “Barnett vs. Kharitonov“ prelim match between Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos and rising Canadian star Jordan Mein would be a front-runner for Fight of the Night. After two entertaining rounds of stand-up, Mein ended the match in the third frame with the nastiest display of standing elbows in MMA history. Seriously, that’s not an exaggeration. Skip to about the 1:45 mark and tell me I’m wrong — this might even give Anderson Silva vs. Tony Fryklund a run for its money. To see the first two rounds of the fight (and everything else from the prelims), swing by IronForgesIron.

Mein’s victory upped his career record to 23-7, and lengthened a win streak that includes victories over Joe Riggs, Josh Burkman, and Marius Zaromskis. He’s been fighting professionally since 2006, and he’s 21 years old. You do the math on that one.

After the jump: Another highly satisfying knockout from the Strikeforce prelims, this one involving former light-heavyweight champ Rafael Cavalcante and Olympic freestyle wrestling silver medalist (and Strikeforce first-timer) Yoel Romero. We set up the video to skip past the first ten minutes of Romero avoiding the fight and taunting Feijao at every opportunity; trust us, we’re doing you a favor. When Cavalcante finally catches up with his dick-headed opponent, it is so, so good.
