Nothing like a quick and brutal knockout. Before you watch this, remember that this knockout and finish might not have happened if it wasn't for the set of rules they were using in ONE FC.
If you've read my articles or heard me talk about fighting, I enjoy playing the role of an optimistic devil's advocate. Let me begin.
When I first got into watching fights, it was back in the mid-1990's and back then the rules were quite different. The rules were actually pretty inexistent to be accurate, i.e. Mark Coleman's head-butt ground and pound. But there was a set of rules that many fans deemed to be the perfect set of rules, these were the rules from defunct fight promotion Pride. It always seemed much easier to determine who the winner was. You see, they fought in a ring, judges scored the fight as a whole, fighters could not throw elbows to the head on the ground, and soccer kicks were allowed. Pretty perfect to me.
Recently in One FC we had a fight where Mario Satya Wiraman came out guns blazing to start the bout and dropped Chan Heng with a perfect punch. But instead of following the fighter to the ground like we would usually see under the unified set of rules, he threw soccer kicks for the win. Many times in MMA we have guys follow the opponent to the ground, the hurt opponent is able to recover, and the fighter that landed the damage puts himself in a position to possibly lose the fight.
That being said, take six seconds from your day, watch this fight, and voice your opinion on the rules in MMA.
