This absolutely has to be the world's first somersault one-punch KO

This absolutely has to be the world's first somersault one-punch KO

Somerassault. Some more salt. Summer cult.

What a dumb word that 'somersault.'

I had to ensure this ridiculous knockout wasn't reminiscent of Peter Grahams' infamous 'Rolling Thunder' that knocked out Badr Hari in K-1 back in the day. If I didn't, I'm sure Dave Walsh from LiverKick would have scolded me and then continue to rock out in his metal band.

Our buds at Team Quest Thailand just released this video of one of their fighters winning an MMA bout via somersault one-punch KO. It was his second amateur fight and he managed to make everyone's head implode from sheer amazement. Check it out and props to DENV3RtheDESTROY3R for the +100 news tip.

Zeus @MiddleEasy

Zeus is represented by Galactus in his avatar image because he has an immature obsession with Marvel when they went all sci-fi back in the mid 80s. I'm the creator of MiddleEasy and Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Just kidding about the Nickelodeon stuff, but that would be really cool.

Isn't that a "stumble and fall due to contact and then roll to his feet punch"?

If by "somersault" you mean "lose balance and fall on your ass while spinning after throwing a punch", then yes.

Somersault. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I think Denv3r is on a path to pass up Zeus in ME points.

Meh. Krazy Horse's "stumble punch" KO on Noons was better.

That ain't no somersault, but it's cool - he's been drinking a little of what Machida's been having.
