Midnight Mania! Brutal four-second MMA head kick knockout goes down in Arkansas

50 0

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight …

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight, we have a four-second knockout, Nick Diaz calling the UFC bitches, Paige VanZant in the opening pages of a mystery novel, fighters appreciating their mothers, knockouts, podcasts, grappling highlights and much more

Over in Four

Remember this? If you were paying attention, this record-setting knockout showed up in The Morning After, my post-fight UFC 211 column.

Jordan Fowler vs. Dylan Goforth 4 second KO at Pyramid Fights 2. (Fowler wins). Welp. pic.twitter.com/QbpV6MnbWH

According to MMAFighting.com, the amateur fight was in Arkansas, at 195 pounds. Fowler had yet to win a fight up to this point in his amateur career, while Goforth was 2-0.

At just four seconds in, on the first strike thrown, this knockout is among the fastest in MMA, ever. Jordan Fowler steps forward to throw and Dylan Goforth, perhaps expecting a body kick, drops his hands. It’s an ill-timed reflex, as Fowler’s head kick lands with a sickening slap, dropping Goforth like a sack of potatoes. There is no need for a follow-up. The fight is over.


Nick Diaz got salty at the UFC today

At @ufc you lose money because of your lack of understanding for the sport and by the way thanks for the tickets to the fight bitch!

Paige VanZant found herself in the opening scene of a mystery movie yesterday.

Some man just walked in while I was eating lunch and handed me $50. He said it was for Deputy Perez and listed off other names. Thoughts??

— Paige VanZant (@PaigeVanzantUFC) May 14, 2017

He immediately walked out after, I tried to find him and ask what he meant and what it was for but he was gone…….

Dustin Poirier plans to appeal the No Contest to Eddie Alvarez, but only to get his win money. He doesn’t care a whole lot about the result in itself.

That was my fight…

Speaking of featherweights, this is a really good matchup.

You know exactly how we will take it. Not well.

Spoke to source in Miocic camp who says are entertaining the idea of him vs. Anthony Joshua in boxing match. Take that for what you will.

I don’t know if this counts.

Stann previewing how Maia-Woodley will go- if indeed this fight gets made. Woodley is dead set on alienating every hardcore fan out there by insisting he would rather fight Diaz or GSP, although he thinks he matches up the best with Maia out of anyone in the top ten.

Just seeing if @twooodley was ready last night. Gotta keep your head on a swivel in this FOX studio. @kbheat was so bored by us last night lol

Being willing to get my leg broke in half is a huge reason why I am where I am today. Things would be a lot different today if I tapped. https://t.co/2VI25oMGHn

Eddie Alvarez doesn’t know how to quit. Just another reminder how impressive the McGregor KO was.

Some old boxing highlights for you, and a reminder for Conor that Floyd Mayweather has made very skilled, champion-level boxers look like amateurs.

See if you can guess who knocks out who before you press play. Not to brag, but I got it right the first time.
