Eleven of the Greatest “Bully Gets Owned” Videos on the Internet


(Australian bully talks trash, gets Barboza’d.)

CP reader Juan Pablo B. sent us the above video earlier today, and it made us realize that “bully gets owned” videos have become a powerful Internet genre unto themselves, like scare pranks or ASMR vids. The appeal is obvious: We rarely get to see aggressive dickheads get their comeuppance in real life, so it’s always incredibly satisfying when moments like these are caught on tape.

There are literally thousands more videos where these came from, so if we’ve left out any of your favorites, drop some links in our comments section or tweet ‘em to us @CagePotatoMMA.

GLORY 16 Highlights: Raymond Daniels’ Incredible Spinning Kick, Pat Barry Gets KTFO’d by Zack Mwekassa


(Props: GloryWorldSeries)

The kickboxing event GLORY 16 went down Saturday night at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, and has been making headlines for two reasons. First, spin-kick artist Raymond Daniels added another spectacular knockout to his highlight reel when he nailed Francois Ambang with the “two touch” jumping back kick shown above. This one might be tough to beat in the Best Knockout of 2014 Potato Award category.

And in sadder news, UFC heavyweight veteran Pat Barry — whose return to kickboxing was supposed to rejuvenate his fight career — was brutally knocked out cold by Zack Mwekassa in the first round of their match. After the fight, there were reports floating around that Pat Barry vs. Mirko Cro Cop was booked as the headliner of GLORY’s next show on June 21st, which would be kind of insane considering that Pat has been knocked out three times in his last four fights and could probably use a little time off. Luckily, the booking appears to be an unfounded rumor at this point; we’ll update you when we know more.

MMA in the Wild: Argentinian Street Fight Ends in Immediate Head Kick Knockout


(Thanks to CagePotato reader Juan Pablo B. for the tip!)

Everybody underestimates head movement — but in a one-on-one street-fight, it’s probably the greatest advantage you can have. This little altercation went down recently in Cordoba, Argentina, featuring a guy in a red jacket who slips ‘n’ rips like a pro, and a dude in a white long-sleeve who clearly doesn’t have the same level of kickboxing experience.

The whole thing lasts about three seconds, and ends with red-jacket guy landing a beautiful right high kick that sends the other guy tumbling face first like Steve Judson. Luckily, the fight ended there and nobody was gang-stomped or bashed with a 2×4. Kudos for being civilized, Argentina.

VIDEO: Pat Barry Returns to Kickboxing, Knocks Out Ed Burris at CSC 39


(Props: instagram.com/hypeordie)

Former UFC heavyweight Pat Barry made his return to kickboxing last night, knocking out opponent Ed Burris at CSC 39: USA vs. the World, which took place at the Arthur Ashe Athletic Center in Richmond, Virginia.

Since this 15-second Instagram clip is all we have to work with, we have no idea if the fight was even remotely competitive, or if Burris just covered up the whole time, waiting for the inevitable. (We’ll update this post if/when a full video of the match surfaces.) At any rate, Barry picks up some valuable ring-time and confidence heading into his GLORY debut against Zack Mwekassa, May 3rd in Broomfield, Colorado.

Well done, HD.

Head Kick Knockout of the Day: Drew Fickett Gets Smoked by Luis Felix at CES MMA 22


(Props: fightstreamcom)

We wish we could say that Drew Fickett turned his career around when he found sobriety — that he became a terror on the regional circuit, and will be returning to the UFC any day now. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Fickett suffered his fourth-straight loss at CES MMA 22 in Rhode Island on Friday night, eating a brutal head kick from local lightweight Luis Felix that dropped Fickett like a sack of doorknobs.

It was the kind of knockout that makes you think, okay, maybe now is the time for Drew to walk away. It’s not just that he’s already racked up a solid history of brain trauma. At this point, Fickett is only being used as a recognizable stepping-stone for regional talent, and the sole benefit for him being there is a modest paycheck. And if you watch the entire fight — where Fickett seems like he’s still trying to figure out the standup game, despite having over 60 pro fights to his credit — it’s clear that what Luis Felix did to him is just going to keep happening to Fickett if he keeps competing.

Anyway, kudos to this Luis Felix guy. But damn…anybody else get a case of the sads watching Fickett get dummied up like this?

Is This “One-Second Knockout” Really the Fastest Knockout in MMA History? [VIDEO]


(Props: Ultimate Challenge MMA)

On Saturday night at WCMMA 14 in London, welterweight Mike Garret knocked out Sam Heron with a savage head kick immediately after the opening bell. Promoter Dave O’Donnell — who you may remember from the “Completely Insane British Guy Interviews Anderson Silva” video — called it a “new world record” at 1.7 seconds. In the longer video above, a timecode runs in the bottom-right-hand corner of the screen, stopping at 1.13 seconds, which would be incredible if it was an accurate reflection of when the fight ended. But it’s not, really.

That 1.13 number refers to the time between the first bell and the time when Garret’s foot makes contact with Heron’s face. Unfortunately, that’s not the official end of the match. An MMA fight ends at the moment when the referee waves it off or intervenes. So yes, Heron gets his lights turned out just a little over one second into the fight, and Garret walks away, signaling that the fight is over for him at least. The problem is, the referee takes a couple of additional seconds to walk over to Heron, assess his condition, and wave off the fight. Later in the video, O’Donnell rounds down and calls it a “one-second” knockout. Then he has a conversation with Garret, and honestly, I couldn’t understand most of it.

Personally, I’m seeing three seconds and change, which would put it in line with Clements vs. Tucas. (And this one still looks faster.) But if self-promotion is your goal, “one-second knockout” certainly sounds nicer.

Knockout of the Day: Vik Grujic Elbows Luke Harris’s Head Through the Floor on ‘TUF Nations’


(Props: ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ on YouTube)

The Vik Grujic vs. Luke Harris quarterfinal fight from Wednesday’s episode of TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia is notable for a few reasons. For one thing, it’s the only knockout that has taken place in the first eight episodes of the season. (See? Aren’t you glad you’re not watching?) Second, it ends with a storm of elbows from the top, which we always appreciate. And third, it features Harris doing the most dead-on Koji Oishi impression we’ve ever seen, before he inevitably gets his ass kicked.

By the way, Luke Harris isn’t some random palooka they found in a yoga studio. Every single victory in the Canadian’s 10-2 pro record has come by first-round submission, including a guillotine choke win over Edwin Dewees in 2012, if that means anything. [Ed. note: It doesn't.] But clearly, he’s still figuring out the striking part of the equation. Watch as Harris stands in front of Grujic totally flat-footed and with his hands dropping to his waist, just waiting to get blasted in the chin. After a clash of strikes, Grujic slams Harris on the side of his head with minimal effort, then splits Harris’s dome open like a coconut with short elbows. The whole thing takes about 50 seconds.

But hey, that’s what this reality-show tournament is about, right? Filtering out the guys who aren’t real [expletive] fighters? And discovering the next generation of indistinguishable Fight Pass talent? The Grujic Era is coming, folks. Be ready.

Knockout of the Day: Dude Gets Head-Kicked Into Outer Space at Jordanian MMA Event


(Props: TheCombatSystem)

When MiddleEasy posted the above video earlier this week, they described the knockout victim as “kicked so hard that he actually levitates before his body crashes to the mat.” I would disagree with that description. “Levitation” suggests that the guy slowly floated upward before hanging out for a while in mid-air. That’s not exactly what happens here. It’s more like he immediately goes horizontal while flying backwards, like when you knock down a bad guy in Final Fight.

This happened on January 27th at the “Desert Force Finale” event put on by Desert Force Championship in Amman, Jordan. The guy you hear in the video is Dan “The Wolfman” Theodore, and yes, it is weird just to hear one guy doing play-by-play for an MMA fight will all other sounds stripped out. Kind of lonely, I guess.

Fun fact: This is not the first time we’ve featured a brutal head-kick knockout from a Desert Force Championship event. Click here to see a three-second dinger from all the way back in December 2010. Trust us, it’s worth your time.

‘WTF?’ Video of the Day: Musangwe Fighter Gets KO’d, Is Given Furious Handjob CPR


(Props: Musangwe. Kinda NSFW)

“In Musangwe it is believed that stimulating the male sexual organs after a knockout increases their chances of surviving.”

This bit of folksy medical wisdom comes from the video description of “MUSANGWE KNOCKOUT- MOST DARING CPR!“, which just came to our attention this morning even though it’s been floating around for few days. (Apologies if you’ve already seen it; we were pretty much off the grid over New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day. So…2014, eh? How ’bout that.)

As Gawker explains, Musangwe “is a form of bare-knuckle fist fighting traditionally practiced by the Venda people of South Africa.” And apparently, the rough, frantic handjob that the knockout-victim receives in the video isn’t punishment for losing — they’re trying to save his life. Still, once you add in the water-bucket it starts to look like an especially brutal fraternity hazing. I don’t know, man. There’s got to be an easier way.

My theory: At a certain point, that dude was just pretending to be asleep.
