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: 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.

Monday Morning Video Dump: Best Non-UFC KOs of 2013, Wild Brawl at Badminton Match, Key & Peele’s Latest MMA Spoof + More


(Some New Year’s motivation from Phuket Top Team. Now go out and make something of your lives, you pansies.)

It’s the beginning of a new week, and there ain’t much going on out there in the world of MMA at the moment. Anderson Silva‘s coaches claim he’ll return to competition, but we’ve already called a ban on that sort of thing. Michael Bisping has fired the latest shot in his ongoing verbal war with Tim Kennedy, but who knows if/when that fight will actually be booked. It’s a whole lot of nothing, in other words. So why not enjoy some of these totally random videos we came across this morning, and start your Monday off with some good vibes?

Knockout of the Day: Fighter Touches Gloves, Kind of Just Stands There, Gets KTFO’d [VIDEO]


(Props: Amatorska Liga MMA via KnockoutFootage)

When an MMA fighter gets KO’d immediately after a glove-tap, it often means that his opponent was being a cheap dick about it. But in the lightning-fast knockout you see above, all blame should lay upon the victim. See, if you’re going to touch gloves before a fight, do it fast and then get out of the way. DON’T lumber forward with your feet flat and your chin out. And after you do your little fist-bump, for the love of God, get your damn hands up or you will be head-kicked into an embarrassing reverse somersault, like this idiot.

If you’ll notice, the guy on the left doesn’t initiate the tap, but he’s courteous enough to oblige when dipshit over there dangles his arm out like an overcooked noodle. Guy On The Left sees an opportunity, and snatches it with a front-leg roundhouse to the face. The impact is loud, and it is awesome. The only disappointing part is that the shirtless guy still looked like he was ready to bang some more. Ah well. Let this be a lesson to the rest of you aspiring fighters: After the ref starts the fight, “Wait, bro, I wasn’t ready” isn’t really a valid excuse.

Video: Andrei Arlovski TKO’s Andreas Kraniotakes in Belarus [UPDATED]


(Props: UnderDog22 via MMAFighting)

As we mentioned last week in our profile of Muay Thai coach Said Hatim, Andrei Arlovski competed in his homeland of Belarus on Friday night, taking on German journeyman Andreas Kraniotakes in the headliner of Fight Nights: Battle on Nyamiha. Arlovski appeared loose and in control throughout the fight, which ended in the second round with a big right hand from The Pitbull and some follow-up shots on the ground. You can watch the fight above, which we’ve cued up to the TKO finish.

The match gave Arlovski his second straight win, and his fourth victory in his last five appearances. Hatim won his fight as well, stopping Artem Kazersky by second-round TKO. We’ll update this post if video of that match pops up on the Internet.

Update: And it has. Check out video of the entire event after the jump. Hatim’s fight begins at the 2:06:28 mark.

Knockout of the Day: A Capoeira Cartwheel Kick KO, Just Two Weeks After the Last One


(Props: Apollo Reed via MiddleEasy)

It’s safe to say that the capoeira-style cartwheel kick has officially entered mainstream consciousness in the MMA fight game. At first, the technique only appeared in the arsenals of capoeira die-hards and crazy-ass white-people. Now, we’ve got a Morrocan welterweight rookie named Anas Siraj Mounir landing it at a UK event on Saturday, just two weeks after hot featherweight prospect Julio Cesar Neves stuck the move in Brazil. So if you’re an MMA fighter and you were thinking about trying a cartwheel kick in a fight, do it now, before everybody starts preparing for it. I’ve already said too much.

After the jump: A different angle of the kick. You’ll have to provide your own audio.

Insane Knockout Double-Feature: A Capoeira Cartwheel Kick, And the Most Savage WMMA K.O. of the Year


(Props: ZombieProphet)

So there’s this featherweight from Santa Catarina named Julio Cesar Neves, and he’s an absolute monster. In less than two years of professional competition, Neves has racked up a record of 26-0 (!), with 24 of those wins by stoppage. On Saturday, he picked up his 13th win of the year (!!), and we have a feeling this one will get him noticed by the big leagues.

The fight you see above went down at Watch Out Combat Show 28, where Neves faced Dener Dos Santos. Less than two minutes into the first round, Neves fires a capoeira-style cartwheel kick that immediately sends Dos Santos into falling-tree mode. Your move, Lelo.

And now, in the women’s division, we have a knockout that’s less flashy, more smashy…

Bellator 97 Videos + Results: Chandler Destroys Rickels, Askren Dominates Koreshkov in Far Less Entertaining Fashion


(Video via MMAJunkie)

Maybe one day there will be a Bellator lightweight contender who’s talented enough to defeat champion Michael Chandler — but it ain’t gonna be the dinosaur guy. (No offense.)  Season 8 lightweight tournament winner David Rickels had a good head of steam going into his title challenge against Chandler last night at Bellator 97, with four straight wins including a TKO of Saad Awad back in March. But against a truly world-class lightweight, the Caveman was in way over his head.

As you can see in the video above, Rickels didn’t even have a chance to get started. Chandler swarmed as soon as he staggered Rickels with a right straight, landing more follow-up power shots and diving after Rickels when the challenger hit the mat. In just 44 seconds, Rickels was unconscious and Michael Chandler (now 12-0 overall) had made his second title defense with another fearsome display of killer instinct.

Chandler’s next fight will likely come against Dave Jansen, the Season 7 lightweight tournament winner who hasn’t been able to face Chandler yet due to injury. Jansen is 6-0 in Bellator, and is clearly the most qualified man for the job. And yet, we can’t help but wonder how Chandler would stack up against some of the top 155′ers in the UFC — not like that would ever happen.

Speaking of dominant Bellator champions who could use a higher level of competition…
