A mix of these arts often create spectacular outcomes to fights. Brutal head kicks, flying arm bars and vicious slams are amongst the most exciting ways to see a contest come to an end. None however might be as exciting or rewarding as a flying knee knockout.

There is something amazing and strangely satisfying about seeing a man or women fly through the air to deliver a knee to the opponent’s face.

However, a Flying knee knockout is something you don’t see weekly in the MMA world, as they take an incredible amount of skill and timing to pull off correctly. Mistime one and you leave yourself wide open to a potential counter, but land one perfectly and the chances are the fight will not be continuing. This makes it all the sweeter when you witness one pulled off to perfection.

There have been many famous finishes of this kind throughout MMA history. From Anderson Silva’s incredible flying knee knockout of Carlos Newton in pride, to Thiago Alves’s shocking upset finish of welterweight king pin Matt Hughes. The biggest organisations don’t’ always yield the best results however, as many of the most spectacular flying knees in MMA have come from the smaller organisations around the world.
