There are a lot of amazing ways to knock out your opponent in an MMA bout, but a flying knee KO has to be somewhere near the top of the list.
If you’re not so sure, just take a look at this flying knee KO that Azamat Murzakanov delivered during his UFC Vegas 50 bout against Tafon Nchukwi. Things weren’t looking good for Murzakanov going into the third and final round of the fight, but just when it seemed like all hope had been lost, this flying knee knockout came out of nowhere and saved the day for the man they call “The Professional.”
With that, the Russian fighter improves to 11-0 in his MMA career, with eight of those victories coming via knockout.
But of all those knockouts, I think it’s safe to say that his latest is also his greatest.
