Fighter Survives Double Knockdown Then Earned TKO In Crazy 20-Seconds

Fans in attendance at a regional fight card in Brazil this week were treated to an almost unfathomable piece of action when Jorge Filho and Cemey dos Santos shared the cage for all of 20 seconds.

A lot of things happened before the stoppage though, as dos Santos and Filho were able to knock each other down at the same time.

The two men both landed right hands on each other and were simultaneously sent to the canvas. Dos Santos got up in time to land another right hand on a still down Filho, and the referee swooped in for the TKO stoppage.

However Dos Santos was the first to come to and he hopped right back to his feet and let fly with one more vicious hook to Filho, forcing the referee to jump in and bring an end to the contest.

That’s the third notable instance of a fight featuring a double knockdown but an eventual winner by (T)KO this year. Matt Mitrione’s memorable win over Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator: NYC will go down as one of the crazier high-profile fights of the year.
