Alot of Muay Thai bouts in Thailand end with elbow KO's[/QUOTE
Thanx for that video clip,man.That is sweet!
Listen: From my vantage point it doesn't really look like there is that much power behind it, but it obviously did the job.
Is there a pattern here? I noticed in the Ali/Foley fight, the punch that knocked out Foley didn't look like it had a lot of power either.
Why do you suppose that is?I notice that a lot of times when someone gets knocked out, the technique that knocks them out doesn't usually look like its got a lot of power behind it,it just gets in there fast.
I notice also that in the clip that you show, he had the guy's head in a clinch with one hand while he threw the elbow with his other arm.

Alot of the time it has to do with were the elbow lands. Like in the video plazzman gave you, the point of the elbow hits right on/behind the ear. A good place to hit someone.

Also the elbows may not look powerful, but its the speed at which the elbow is thrown that does the damage. If you can throw a fast elbow you have a good chance at doing damage. And the elbow is a point and a very hard bone, so getting hit with it is gonna hurt.
