Missed Fists: Fighter will get dropped, goes on autopilot to win wild brawl

Welcome to the newest version of Missed Fists the place we shine a light-weight on fights from throughout the globe that will have been neglected in these hectic occasions the place it looks like there’s an MMA present each different day.

Main off this week, now we have an unbelievable comeback, the type that occurs all too typically in lesser identified MMA promotions. And that’s why we love them.

(Huge thanks as at all times to @Barrelelapierna for his or her weekly lists of the perfect KOs and submissions, and to @Grabaka_Hitman for importing lots of the clips you see right here. Give them a observe and chip in on Patreon should you can.)

Cameron Smotherman vs. Dylan King

There is no such thing as a doubt in my thoughts that Cameron Smotherman was staring into the abyss for a full second there after consuming a clear proper hand from Dylan King. His physique hitting the mat needed to have jostled him again to consciousness. You possibly can’t persuade me in any other case.

No matter how Smotherman survived that knockdown, he went on to thrive and commerce haymakers with King earlier than ultimately ending up on the best facet of this spotlight clip. This was a giant win for Smotherman who entered Sunday on a two-fight shedding streak, with a kind of losses coming by the use of a 13-second TKO.

Fury FC 50 is on the market for replay on UFC Fight Pass.

Rahmads Stromanis vs. Karar Al-Jaberi
Alexander Loof vs. Amir Malekpour

Additionally on UFC Combat Go, Sweden’s Combat Membership Rush promotion featured a pair of superior knockouts courtesy of Rahmads Stromanis and Alexander Loof.

Stromanis landed probably the greatest strikes of the weekend, sniping Karar Al-Jaberi with a Superman punch.

Main bonus factors for the walkoff, the mouthpiece spit, and the primal scream. It doesn’t get a lot better than that.

Loof’s end of Amir Malekpour wasn’t fairly as tidy. The bantamweights virtually went the complete 15, which implies they needed to have picked up on one another’s tendencies. That was positively the case with simply seconds left within the struggle as Malekpour went to the physique kick effectively one too many occasions and left himself open to the right counter.

Yup, that’s former Bellator standout Ricky Bandejas making his second look for Combate World and sadly struggling his first loss within the promotion. Bandejas hasn’t been capable of recapture the hype he garnered for himself after smoking James Gallagher three years in the past, although that’s not likely his fault. His subsequent two fights after Gallagher have been Juan Archuleta and Patchy Combine. Yikes.

Final Friday, he bumped into white scorching 21-year-old prospect Kevin Cordero. The Spaniard was making his Combate debut and he submitted Banderas with a second remaining in Spherical 1 to enhance to 12-2 and win his sixth straight struggle by end. Combate might need a brand new star on its palms.

Abdugalim Nuritdinov vs. Soyibzhon Abdunazarov

Suloev stretches are hardly ever described as a blink-and-you-missed-it submission, however that’s what occurred when Abdugalim Nuritdinov acquired his hooks in in opposition to Soyibzhon Abdunazarov at Kingdom Skilled Combat: Choice 6 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Perhaps it was inexperience or very cheap considerations about having his decrease extremities torn asunder, however Abdunazarov tapped out to this one quick. Unimaginable ending instincts proven by Nuritdinov right here.

Watch a free replay of this occasion on VK.

Checking in one other veteran of a serious North American promotion, former UFC gentle heavyweight Gadzhimurad Antigulov noticed his struggles proceed as he was blasted within the second spherical by Vitor Petrino at UAE Warriors 22 in Abu Dhabi.

Make that 5 straight losses for Antigulov. Like Bandejas, he could have simply run right into a scorching prospect right here. Petrino, 24, is now 6-0 with 5 wins by KO/TKO.

A replay of UAE Warriors 22 is on the market by registering for his or her app.

Zaur Gadzhibabayev vs. Mahmoud Mohamed

The second-best knockout of the weekend was executed by Zaur Gadzhibabayev at MMA Sequence 30 in Moscow.

That’s just about a walk-off KO, although the referee took his candy time truly waving it off. Maybe he was making an attempt to get that good ref cam shot. Hey Soderbergh, how about specializing in defending the fighter subsequent time?

Amin Ergashev vs. Alan Makitov

From Eagle Preventing Championship 40 (full fights obtainable on YouTube), Amin Ergashev wins this week’s Swangin’ and Bangin’ award.

I’m no Teddy Atlas with regards to breaking down palms, however did Ergashev has his ft set on a single a kind of punches? Does it matter?

Je Woo Yeo vs. Shoiatbek Bazarbaev
Jae Nam Yoo vs. Dong Hyuk Ko
Jung Hyun Lee vs. Younger Han Kim
Gi Received Go vs. Dae Younger Jang

Highway FC is one among MMA’s most dependable sources for brutal knockouts and that was definitely the case this previous Saturday in Wonju, South Korea.

I do know that is simply his arm flopping round, however I just like the visible of Shoiatbek Bazarbaev consuming this shot from Je Woo Yeo and waving off his personal struggle simply earlier than his lights shut off fully.

If that was the case, Bazarbaev confirmed rather more situational consciousness than Dong Hyuk Ko, who was like a statue as he simply stood there and ate an overhand proper from Jae Nam Yoo.

I suppose that’s the sort of protection it is best to anticipate to see from a fighter with a 1-9 file.

Jung Hyun Lee confirmed some incredible swagger right here, touchdown a two-piece after which calmly sauntering ahead to complete Younger Han Kim with a pair extra good ones.

That’s a 5-0 fighter beating an 0-5 fighter. I’m not a health care provider, nevertheless it’s in all probability time for Lee to get a step-up in competitors.

We shut out this week with what I’ve to contemplate an aesthetic tribute to the just lately retired Artem Lobov, as Gi Received Go broke out a mid-flurry hammerfist that I’m fairly positive would have been a disqualification had it landed sq. on the again of his opponent’s head as meant.

Both manner, that’s the sort of gusto that may make “The Russian Hammer” proud.

That’s it for this time, people. As at all times, that is the a part of Sprockets the place we dance.
