Patricky Pitbull’s Flying Knee Leaves Toby Imada KO’d On His Feet (Video)

A few years ago, Toby Imada provided us with an incredible finish during his Bellator Fighting Championship match by submitting Jorge Masvida with an inverted triangle choke.  During his Bellator 39 lightweight tournament semi-final fight against Patricky Pitbull, he was part of yet another unbelievable finish.  The only problem was this time he would be on the receiving end of the highlight reel maneuver.

That maneuver would be a flying knee, which Pitbull landed squarely on the jaw of Imada, knocking him out on his feet.  Although Imada remained standing for a moment, he was clearly dazed, and seconds later he would find himself laying unconscious on the mat.

It isn’t often we see a fighter knocked out on their feet like this, and it also isn’t often that we see a flying knee executed with such precision.  Both of these factors should make this knockout by Patricky an early candidate for MMA Knockout of the Year.

Take a look.
