Ladies and Gentlemen, this incredible act proves that the sport is evolving at a pace that our brains may find dangerous to fathom. What we have here, is a knockout/chokeout combo. It’s the value meal of finishes, 2 for 1, and to the Athletic Commission, a riddle wrapped in an enigma as to how the fight was officially won. Is this a win via knockout for Michael “The Boss” Moss, or is it a rear naked choke victory? Chicken, or egg?
Years from now when flying armbar capoeira headkick knockouts are the norm, we will view the ‘knokeout’ as the God Particle of MMA finishes. After this, nothing is the same. Watch this clip starting at 1:05 if you want to have the fabric of reality torn from your conciousness and refashioned as nice, shag rug.
