Strangest MMA/K-1 Fight Outcomes...
 
Woke up this morning for some inexplicable reason and started thinking about the oddest matchups and strange outcomes. Here's my list.

10.)LHW title holder losing a DQ vs Matt Hamill
9.) Mirco Crocop vs Overeem (NC due to gonad shots. One of the few high profile fights that ended in this fashion.)
8.) Anthony Johnson vs Ryan Burns I. Burns win by eye poke, but gets KOed viciously in the rematch.
7.) Jose Canseco vs Hong Man Choi (I laughed pretty hard when I heard about this and laughed even harder when they fought.)
6.) MMA fighter vs dude with no limbs.
5.) Genki Sudo vs Butterbean (Crazy Japanese always make weird matchups for entertainment value.)
4.) Mir vs Big Nog II. Nog had it in the bag then went through a mental lapse when he heard Herb Dean say not to hit em in the back of the head. He then switched to a guillotine and got reversed in what would become one of the sickest reversal submission wins.
3.)Carlos Newton vs Matt Hughes (That should have been the first ever double KO. Carlos locks in a tight triangle hold, Matt passes out and inadvertantly slams Newton which knocks him out. This fight changed the whole career trajectory of both fighters. Hughes went on to become one the biggest UFC WW stars and Newton would fall off eventually running into the likes of rising star Anderson Silva.)
2.) Brock's entire MMA career. When has there ever been a rookie with ZERO experience ever become a champion in any pro sport. I'm very certain had Steve Mazzagatti not stood Brock up in his first fight he would have TKOed Mir. This isn't so much about one particular fight, but more of his physical attributes which leads to my personal #1 pick below.
1.) Ernesto Hoost losing to Bob Sapp of all people...TWICE! Truly unreal. Ernesto was a 4x K-1 champion. This is one of the few times where pure brute strength and unrefined technique overcame skills. See above.

No Anderson losing by flying scissor heel hook?

As much as a fan as I am that is in it's own category. Probably one of the sickest MMA submissions of all time I have to admit.

Speaking of Sapp I think his fight with Seth Petruzelli was a pretty weird fight as well when Petruzelli was able to knock down the man coming back from surgery on his orbital bone but then when Sapp stands back up Petruzelli hyper extends his arm and looses the fight.

you nailed it with sapp vs hoost fights dear lord, also the kickboxer who KO'd aoki with a flying knee in a dream event in special rules

That New Years card was pretty fun, but that KO was awesome for so many reasons.

Bob Sapp Vs. Remy Bonjasky had a weird ending.

kimbo slice vs seth petruzelli

I mean we all knew kimbo was nothing but really you get KOed by a jab from a guy standing on one leg?

kantowrestler 05-21-2013 12:43 AM

Yeah, you would've thought that a guy like Kimbo could have taken something like that. He took harder shots in his fight with James Thompson. Think how much of a freak show it would've been if Shamrock hadn't gotten that cut.

It was also a fix. So shouldn't qualify.
