Video: Great offense or horrible defense? Fighter KO’s opponent with a kick while laying down

Is this the best offensive MMA move we’ve ever seen or just the dumbest MMA defense we’ve ever seen? There is no middle ground or grey area in MMA knockouts.

Knocking out your opponent while you’re on back waiting for him to engage you is an all-time great special move. On the other hand getting knocked out while your opponent is almost helpless automatically lowers your Fight IQ by a couple hundred points.
