I love sports improbabilities.
Double knockouts don’t happen very often in mixed martial arts. It just doesn’t make sense. How are two guys going to hit each other with knockout blows at the exact point of intersection necessary to continue forward with deadly force, but still eat a strike and collapse backwards into beautiful failure symmetry? It’s hard enough to get it to happen once. A Polish DKO (I’m calling it that, I don’t care if it’s wrong) happened back in October, and I thought “welp, that’s something I’m not gonna see again for a while.” However, with only 21 days gone by in March, the month has seen two straight-up double knockouts and a third, pictured above, that came so, so close.
Here are all three, in their glory, with a double hat-tip to Cage Potato.
