In mixed martial arts, it can never be repeated often enough, victories before the time limit are highly valued. To achieve this, almost anything goes. In Muay Thai fights, the elbow is a vicious weapon, which can be used against the opponent’s face, and definitively put an end to things.
In the fight that you can see in the video above, So Sovarathana is opposed to a kickboxer named Neymar. The opposition between the two men will come to an end when So Sovarathana puts an elbow to his chin, which made his opponent’s lights go out.
A huge knockout, followed by a relatively impressive reaction from the referee, who threw himself to the ground to soften Neymar's fall. A reflex that prevented the fighter from suffering unnecessary damage. Not one for late stops, finally a referee is put forward for his exemplary behaviour.
In the Knockout category, many fighters have distinguished themselves in recent weeks. Ryan Garcia, a huge hope in English boxing, stood out by confirming all the hopes placed in him, by knocking out Francisco Fonseca in the first round. He could face Gervonta Davis before the end of the year.
At the UFC Rio Rancho, Jan Blachowicz confirmed his place as a challenger in the light heavyweight title, winning by KO against Corey Anderson in the first round. A performance that will surely give him the right to test himself against the current champion, Jon ‘Bones’ Jones.
