Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

We Just Came Heartbreakingly Close to a Third Double-Knockout in a Single Month [VIDEO]

(Props: MMA THE ZONE via MiddleEasy, once again)

As Ace Rothstein might say, “the probability on one [double-knockout] is a million-and-a-half to one. On three [fights in a single month] it’s in the billions. It cannot happen, would not happen, you fuckin’ mo-mo, whatsa matta wit you??

The fact that we saw double KO’s twice already in March — this clean double-dinger and this epic stumble-fest — is a statistical anomaly on par with Wanderlei Silva winning by choke. And bizarrely enough, it almost happened again in a fight between Kerwin Sherrill and Derek Thompson at MCF6 in North Platte, Nebraska, on Saturday. This time, it seemed like the referee’s utter shock is the only thing that prevented him from stopping the fight an immediate no-contest/draw/whatever it is that happens when two guys dummy each other up at the same time.

Thompson went on to win the match, and likely claimed that he was “never really that hurt” in his post-fight interview.

When your legs go stiff and you fall backwards and when you Korean Zombie yourself by falling face first on your knee the fight is over. I would have called it. Both guys were technically knocked out. The fighters come first. No contest call

I think it was a good non-stoppage, both were moving again immediately. Props to the ref!
