Flying Knee KO (GIF)

Knee-to-the-face KO

I am pretty sure I saw Bruce Lee use this move on one of his opponents in a movie.  It seemed to be pretty effective then, and it certainly appears to be just as effective now.  I think the guy in the green shorts would have to agree with that statement, although he probably doesn’t remember much, which is kind of a shame.  At least he has this clip to remind him of the time he was victimized by the greatest flying knee knockout ever.

You may be asking yourself why this move is not utilized more often in MMA.  The truth is that it can be quite hard to execute with the proper precision, but when it is, the result is truly a thing of beauty.
