MMA Fighter Knocks Himself Out With Flying Kick Attempt (Video)

dan lariviere self knockoutFlying kicks in mixed martial arts can make for quite the impressive highlight when they are executed properly and land on the face of the opponent.  However, they can also make for quite the embarrassing moment, as Dan Lariviere learned during his Empire Fight League 4 bout against Jeremie Capony on Saturday.

Looking to end the bout with a bang in the second round, Lariviere attempted some sort of flying kick, but the only bang that would result from this risky maneuver was the banging of Lariviere’s head against the mat after he was sent crashing to the ground following his errant kick.

Had Lariviere landed this kick, we’d probably still be showing it to you today.  But he didn’t, and now he will have to relive this embarrassing moment for quite some time.  Luckily for him, he probably doesn’t remember much of it.  But unfortunately for him, it was all caught on tape.

Check it out.
