Missed Fists: Fighter loses cup in middle of fight, an insane jumping 360 head kick, more


Welcome to the newest version of Missed Fists the place we shine a light-weight on fights from throughout the globe that will have been missed in these hectic instances the place it looks like there’s an MMA present each different day.

We had two superb highlights to guide off the week and whereas both makes for a worthy Missed Fists headliner, unsurprisingly we went with the extra hilarious possibility.

Isaac Thomson vs. Jaime Garcia

AL: In Biloxi, Miss., at Empire FC 11 on Saturday, we had an gear malfunction that received’t be topped anytime quickly. Positive, we see mouthpieces fall out on a regular basis and sure, we’ve seen a cup cracked in a battle earlier than, however how a couple of cup simply straight-up falling out of a dude’s shorts?

This will shock you, however Jaime Garcia, the man who misplaced the cup, additionally misplaced the battle shortly after.

JM: Completely stunning to me {that a} man who doesn’t know how you can put on a cup additionally was not excellent at preventing. By no means might have seen that one coming.

Deante Brown vs. Nathan Altland

Additionally from the “by no means seen this earlier than” division, we now have an incredible knockout from a regional present in Panama Metropolis Seashore, Fla., which is just made extra compelling by the truth that the spotlight was posted by the man on the receiving finish of the knockout.

That’s Nathan Altland taking an insane 360 spin kick from Deante Brown within the second spherical of their battle at Beatdown on the Seashore 18: Beatdowns-N-Beats this previous Saturday. I needed to double verify to see if he really was the Nathan within the clip and positive sufficient, he shared the entire scene on Fb.

JM: Ahhhh, PCB. I’m stunned these dudes weren’t preventing in jorts. Cracks concerning the panhandle apart although, and that was a sick KO so in fact Altland shared it. North Florida passes a really particular vibe verify and “posting movies of you getting received in spectacular trend” in a location the place you shouldn’t eat a lot much less have an precise medical difficulty happen undoubtedly matches the invoice.

Mikhail Doroshenko vs. David Khachatryan
Diego Bandu vs. Stefan Pretorius

AL: Now I’d like to attract your consideration to a few poorly timed hammerfists, one by Mikhail Doroshenko at AMC Struggle Nights 101 in Russia and one by Diego Bandu at EFC 85 in South Africa.

In each cases, the fighters writer a candy faceplant KO earlier than throwing a follow-up hammerfist that’s wholly pointless. In Doroshenko’s case, I feel it practically prompted a post-fight brawl.

JM: I’ve no drawback with that hammerfist. Was it pointless? Most likely. However given the truth that the dude then received up and tried to battle him I feel it’s onerous to argue it was egregious. That’s on the referee. Gotta be nearer to the motion to make the save, buddy.

AL: And for David Khachatryan, my man, if you fall face down, butt up like that, you don’t have an excessive amount of room to protest the stoppage.

Bandu’s opponent Stefan Pretorius wasn’t protesting something after strolling proper right into a one-punch KO, so on his behalf I’ll give Bandu a wag of the finger for this pointless hammerfist.

JM: Okay, now that one was egregious. Bandu stopped, stared on the clearly unconscious dude, thought of it for a second after which nonetheless popped him one. Takes away from an in any other case nice KO. Unhealthy type.

Svyatoslav Dutka vs. Oleg Yakushev

AL: And over in Ivano-Frankivsk, Ukraine, we now have a singular “He Fell Humorous” winner as Svyatoslav Dutka kicked absolutely the dookie out of Oleg Yakushev’s leg.

Once more, I don’t assume the ref goes to lose any sleep over stopping this one when he did.

JM: That was like a film leg kick the place Jason Bourne turns some dude’s knee inside out. Ouchie, bro.

Jacek Bednorz vs. Kamil Szymuszowski
Alan Dominguez vs. Javier Rodriguez
James Brown vs. Keyon Wilkins

This subsequent trio of knockouts was supposed to guide into the readers taking part in America’s favourite sport present Who Knee’d It Higher? however I feel by the point we get to the final one the reply can be clear.

Our first would-be contestant is Jacek Bednorz from Armia Struggle Evening Particular Version in Lodz, Poland:

I actually like this one as a result of I didn’t even catch the knee touchdown at first look.

JM: Crouching Fighter, Hidden Knee proper into your friggin’ face.

AL: And subsequent Alan Dominguez from Lux Struggle League 13 in Nuevo Leon, Mexico:

Two knees, proper up the center. Dominguez’s opponent Javier Rodriguez was 0-3 heading into this battle and hadn’t been knocked out earlier than, so no less than he received to cross that off of his listing.

JM: Maybe he ought to cross “being an MMA fighter” off the listing. It doesn’t appear to be profession selection for him.

AL: Final, however most definitely not least, right here’s James Brown completely smoking an over-aggressive Keyon Wilkins.

I wager after that, Wilkins was like, “OOWWWWW, I DO NOT FEEL GOOD!”

JM: The factor it’s important to perceive when preventing James Brown is that Papa Don’t Take No Mess so that you higher not Attempt Me as a result of It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World and James Brown is Tremendous Unhealthy. So for those who’re going to just accept the battle, you higher Get Up Offa That Factor and Get On The Good Foot or J.B. will go away you in a Chilly Sweat like he did to Mr. Wilkins there.

AL: (claps)

Montrell James vs. Mikey England
Joseph Luciano vs. Blake Sheppeard
Gor Chilingoryan vs. Rasul Yakhyaev

Let’s shut out with a tip of the cap to those three heroes, who all scored superb submissions that didn’t come straightforward, however had been definitely well worth the bother.

Right here’s Montrell James going all out for a choke at Struggle Alliance Championship 8, Joseph Luciano saying “Look ma, no hooks” at Everlasting MMA 59, and Gor Chilingoryan being an absolute wild man on the bottom at WCC: Pure Choice.

How’s their approach?

JM: Gotta give backside billing to James, who I don’t assume would have been capable of end that RNC had he not knocked Mikey England’s mind into subsequent week with that shot that dropped him.

Center of the pack goes to my man Luciano who received a bizarre RNC that perhaps was extra the results of Blake Sheppeard not understanding what he’s doing? Nonetheless, it ended up being an RNC that one way or the other seemed like a reverse bulldog choke in order that’s kinda cool.

However the high spot for positive goes to Chilingoryan if for no different motive than that roll-through with the leg lock was sick. Man simply stayed spinning with him. Positive, he didn’t get that however that proper there’s a man who can grapple and moments later he proved it with the guillotine. The lesson as all the time, is all the time soar the gilly.
