Video of the Day: Three-Second Head Kick K.O. at Jordanian MMA Event


EMBED-3 seconds head kick knockout – Watch more free videos

Usually we only see knockouts this fast when one of the competitors fakes the glove tap or rushes in like an animal/moron. During a bout at last week’s Desert Force Championship 1 — the first MMA event held in Amman, Jordan — the fighters come out normally, touch gloves, and then the knockout victim just kind of hangs out in concussion-range with his hands down. The sound of the impact is just ridiculous. Great show of respect from the winning fighter, who comes back to…kiss the loser’s ankle? Hmm. Well, it’s a different culture and we must not judge.

@ sindiabad:

The middle east was hosting the biggest grappling tournament in the world because a very rich and powerful man in Abu Dhabi happens to be a BJJ geek, not because the rest of that culture gives a flying armbar about grappling.

He might have kissed his ankle...that is a sign of respect but doubt it. I think he likely bowed down real quick. No different than doing the sign of the cross or thanking God.

Before all you MMA n00bs start making fun of this region, just remember that at one point when you were still watching figuire skating, the middle east was hosting the biggest grappling tournament in the world. All your favorite stars have at some point entered the Abu Dhabi grappling championships.

You just know before the fight someone was just asking... "and you're clear on the game plan?"

Unfortunately, you don't want to see what the virgins look like - there's a reason they are virgins. And most of them are men.

Viva Hate just head kick knocked out my entire cup of coffee. You bastard.

He kept his hands down for a reason, part of his religious beliefs were that is he ran into a head kick like that and died he would go to paradise and be awarded 72 virgins. Part one success, now hopefully he got them bitches.

Not much to say about this besides the fact that it was fucking awesome.

That wasn't his ankle he kissed...

That made me hard.

:D
He is not kissing his opponent's ankle. He is making "sajda" which is what Muslims do when praying to God five times a day. You put your nose and forehead on the floor, testifying to your weakness and God's greatness... It's a way to be thankful...

But, it's hilarious the way you put it... :))

Morningwood is correct.
Morningwood- December 14, 2010 at 1:13 pm
I don't think he kisses the losers ankle. He's bowing to the mat.

I heard that SLAP & now I feel all tingly inside my scrotum.
Morningwood- December 14, 2010 at 1:11 pm
I'm kidding, that was awesome!
Morningwood- December 14, 2010 at 1:10 pm
I'm not impressed by his performance. Jake Shields could do that but chooses not to!

@El Famous Burrito : I see the way you look at him. I'm a man, too, you know? I go pee pee standing up.

There is nothing more satisfying than landing a head kick KO, I've done it but never in 3 sec,...WOW!
LOKI- December 14, 2010 at 12:45 pm
"No you shut the fuck up!"
El Famous Burrito- December 14, 2010 at 12:44 pm
Ha! Face to foot style, how do you like it?
