Tremors from slam in Brazil felt in neighboring continents

 

Earlier this month in Brazil's Hawk Fight Championship, Anderson “Adele” Ramos executed a KO by slam the likes of which are seen only in choreographed pro wrestling bouts, or parachuting accidents.

If anyone knows that the name of this particular takedown is, post below.

If you don't know, make something up!

Slams like that only happen every couple of years. To find the likes of it, you have to back into MMA history, back to...

Travis Fulton vs. Jeremy Bullock in 1998:

...Wes Simms vs. Edwin Allsitez in 2002:

... and Fedor Emelianenko vs. Kevin Randleman in 2004:

Bullock asked for a rematch, Allsitez had six more fights, and Fedor of course tapped Randleman less than a minute later.

Actually the "general" comments complaining about him were in reference to him trying to go through the ref. Read them again. Only a few addressed the hammerfists and that was more in line with being critical of the ref's late stoppage.

I wasn't referring to him trying to still punch after the ref had stepped in. I didn't even notice that after watching it once. I was referring to just the general comments of people complaining about him punching the guy after the slam BEFORE the ref stepped in. To us looking at it, sure we can see the guy is clearly out cold. In a situation where your adrenaline is pumping that moment between the slam and when the ref pulled him off probably felt like a split second. If he was still punching after the ref stepped in than no that is not right. I can't shit on the guy though, I don't know how many fights he has had or anything. I can certainly see how someone with not many fights could get caught up in the moment and do something stupid.

Not the best slam ever, but this is from my first fight and I've always been proud of it.

not impressed. more surprised that at the pro level, someone is trying to do a nolan ryan headlock on somebody and doesn't know how to fall. even more disgusted at douchebag behavior.

In pro wrestling this move would be called a modified Ore Ga Taue. In sambo, I think it would be referred to as the Cherez Grud aka the Russian Ura-nage.

Because the guy was still trying to punch after the fight was over.

How does he sound like an ass? It's the fighter's job to fight until the ref stops it. The worst thing a fighter can do, IMO, is to stop punching and let your opponent recover. If that happens then you might be the one knocked out.
