I saw this Road to Glory fight card posted about a month ago and noticed Brian Collette and Randy Blake were on it. I didn’t know who any of the other guys were, and figured I didn’t need to because one of those two would surely win all three of their fights in vicious first round knockouts. When it comes to kickboxers this big, the first one to connect with any kind of punch or kick generally wins the oversized check with a large number on the right and gets to pose with scantily-clad ladies who are paid to smile. The bookies in Las Vegas whole-heartedly supported my assessment. In fact, when one fighter was forced to drop out and Dustin Jacoby stepped in, he assumed the role of ‘biggest underdog’ in the history of underdogs based on his lack of experience. To make that a little clearer, he has never kickboxed professionally before… Like never ever.
In 2013, going 0-2 in the UFC means you can get cut and discover that your true calling is knocking out some of the best light heavyweights in the world of kickboxing elite. Dustin Jacoby did just that, and to make it even more impressive, he did it on just one day’s notice. Check out this rawesome video of highlight reel knockouts from the MMA fighter turned kickboxer.
