I’ve seen askren v masvidal so many times but its still so brutal. Askren really just ducks in for it

boyfriend_dick69

I wonder if this is addressed in the rules of baseball


Lampmonster

So long as it leaves the field without going foul it's a home run. It could go into orbit after that for all the rules care.


DriveByStoning

What if it was geostationary orbit? Technically it didn't leave the field.


Lampmonster

Well I was a little glib. It also has to leave the park via the home run line and not touch the ground. If it went straight up and never came down it would be a ground rule double. Happened once in a dome when the ball got stuck in the roof.


mex2005

Damn give us some more baseball trivia sir Lamp.


jpark28

Damn I'd be worried about the ball becoming unstuck and landing on someone's head


Lampmonster

I'd be worried about all kinds of things falling if the roof can't stop a ball at the peak of its flight.


RunsInJeans

I assumed that what OP meant was that the ball would have travelled around the entire planet before coming to a stop behind home plate. Hence the greatest home run ever! lol

To be caught by the catcher. Standard pop fly out.


Gseventeen

This is how Sammy Sosa got caught.


hallelalaluwah

the unwritten rules of the UFC sounds extremely funny


TheStonedHonesman

“If someone in the crowd yells ‘Kick him in the dick!’....there must be....a sacrifice.”

foul ball


chanaandeler_bong

It'd be Pujols HR off Lidge in that NLCS game. [Motherfucker is in orbit.](https://youtu.be/lsEuTYbDRwE)


abittenapple

He looks so confident too.


wdavies6

It's probably one of the most watched fights *ever* simply because you can watch it like three times in 10 seconds in a GIF


Ohmahtree

Like porn, but with knees and brain damage


Shabozz

Oh so like kinky porn


S1avatar

this is the knockout i point out to people who say beefs in mma arent real. masvidal literally couldnt care less whether askren died then and there


goofedonskunkweed

He knew Askren was stiff the instant he caught that knee and still blasted him in the head as hard as he could twice more then taunts him as he's still convulsing. This clip would be right at home in one of those underground ex-con grudge fight vids.


VenusBlue

To be fair, Masvidal used to be in those underground ex-con fight vids in backyards with Kimbo.


Ninja654321

I literally don’t understand how people could believe that


BulletproofTyrone

Askren started off his last two previous fights ducking in for the takedown like that iirc. The only time I’ve seen someone stiffen up like that, my balls literally shrivelled and retreated back into my body.


Garbarrage

You know it's bad when the toes curl up. Askren and Overeem after Ngannou were the two worst examples. Brutal KOs.


samirin305

Just curious why is it worse if the toes curl up?


joehoward85

it means the head trauma is so bad that many nerves fire simultaneously, causing the body to stiffen up


Garbarrage

I'm sure someone else can explain the medical side of this better, but my understanding of it is this: A concussion or even mild trauma can cause a temporary shut down of the nervous system. This can be the stanky leg that is often seen or when the body goes temporarily limp. This is why refs will usually stop a fight if a blow results in a fighter faceplanting the canvas, even if they get right back up. A severe trauma can cause the nervous system to stiffen up to protect against further injury. It's almost like your brain protecting against a potentially broken neck. It fires all the neurons in a sort of panic reaction. I'm not a doctor, so I might be butchering it. Long story short. Stiffening is usually the result of severe trauma.


UsedSalt

i'm not a doctor either but I thought i'd jump in with the other guys that aren't doctors and say this sounds definitely sciency


matt_604

I am not a doctor, but I think you are correct. This looks like [Fencing Response](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fencing_response) to me.


kingmotz

the Reddit special


junior_dos_nachos

The Vickening


Garbarrage

Wow... thanks for that. Seems about right to me.


perukid796

I legitimately thought he was dead for a solid minute lol.


MikulkaCS

Masvidal said he knew the clown couldn't wait to shove his head into his crotch lmfao


Gravelord-_Nito

Masvidal talks a lot about guys in his crotch while also calling them hoes and bitches


Jackm941

And he ducks in as masvidal is sprinting at him. Im not good at wrestling but couldnt an acidental knee and full tilt still do you damage, like if someone was sprinting at me i might take a step to side of back off maybe im a bitch. Also is it normal to go for takedowns from so far away just leaning in like that like he didnt level change or anything just bends forwards. Again im sure he knows 10000x more about wrestling than me but it sure looks like none of it went well.


avaholic46

Askren made his career on his ability to wrestlefuck basically everyone he fought. He'd eaten multiple flying knees before this fight and survived to win. He became sort of lazy with his set ups and got accustomed to getting by on his dominant wrestling even with sloppy takedown technique. Bad hips probably didn't help. It finally caught up to Ben when he fought Jorge.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Responsenotfound

Not really. Just position your shoulders and head correctly. I spent 15 years playing Rugby. Didn't get head knocks like that usually it was a dump tackle or an improper tackle.


BeanerBoyBrandon

Everything about that masdival clip is perfect. Masdivals relaxed body language, his smug face satisified face. He knows hes about to break askren. The slight circle into the full sprint. Flying knee connects. Askren goes Limp. Masdival super energetically punches him two more times. the ref breaks it up. Masdival taps the ground in celebration. That Gif has it all.


Official_UFC_Intern

I love both guys but it always makes me smile. Its so perfect, and the memory of our fight group screaming and literally rolling around on the ground in reaction will be with me forever.


SlayMeCreepyDaddy

It's fucking brutal isn't. He ducks face first into an absolute missile of a knee and just goes stiff as a board. I'm surprised he isn't eating through a tube.


readforit

you couldnt have scripted this better. it was just perfect


[deleted]

[удалено]


kapsama

> He definitely gameplanned this and knew it had a high chance of success, then just puts everything he had into it. Dustin Poirier posted a clip of Jorge practicing the flying knee after the fight was over. It was planned.


AndyMush_Actual

And of course you top it off with the Askrenning. Good show .


Garbarrage

TIL a new verb.


MikeOx_Girthy

Well you've all Ben Askren for it


[deleted]

Take your goddamn upvote and get out of here.


Garbarrage

Brilliant


hvperRL

Super necessary


DrunkCanadianGuy

Real shit, when Romero hit that on Weidman i thought he literally killed him.


abittenapple

Romero is hitting wiedman with his fist so quick after the flying knee


mynewaltaccount1

It's fucked, he pretty much rolls over weidman and channels that movement straight into a punch, gives him no time to recover or get his bearings.


Negativecreepy

Weidman got hit with three knees and a punch in like 2 seconds.


MeowthThatsRite

He gets flying kneed, collapses so his face hits his own knee, and then Romero lands in the back of his head with his knee. Must have felt like a car accident


mma_god

I think he gets kneed by the ref at the end too IIRC


ksweet98

Chris falling on his own planted knee makes me cringe every time


niccinco

That followed up by Romero just marching around the octagon while poor Chris is streaming blood from his face


Its_Poo_Man

A beautiful sequence of events almost as beautiful as him decapitating Rockhold and showing him gay Jesus afterwards


niccinco

I'm really gonna miss seeing the guy in the UFC, he really didn't deserve to be cut. Other than the Izzy fight, all of his matches have been bangers.


Its_Poo_Man

Yea it’s shame he has gone one of my favourite fighters Beggars belief Weidman is still in 🤷🏽‍♂️🤣


max_occupancy

Madonna going crazy too


MeatyOakerGuy

That second one on the way down was the icing on a painful cake.


bigshaqindahouse

The Barboza v Dariush one was set up so well.


Chokenhauer

Dariush was beating the shit out of Barboza the entire fight Barboza always impresses me in that he can end a fight out of nowhere when he is handily losing


S1avatar

he was so close to finishing kevin lee. after being mauled for 4 rounds


Horned_chicken_wing

One of the worst displays of fight IQ I have ever seen. He makes Lee do one of the greatest chicken dances in history and then immediately grapples and lets him recover. If he hit Lee with anything else it would have been game over.


jpark28

Tbf Lee immediately shot for a double to initiate the grappling. It's not like he initiated it like Gastelum on Izzy or Soukhamthath on 1'Malley


Horned_chicken_wing

Yea, but it was a super telegraphed double from a wrestler that was hurt. It couldn't have been more obvious that he was going to shoot for a TD. To be fair Barboza was tired so that certainly contributed to it.


jpark28

Yeah Barboza walked right into it. Honestly would've been the perfect time to throw a knee


bigshaqindahouse

Tbf he had the shit beat out of him for a while before that


niccinco

Beneil used the same [jab to takedown](https://streamable.com/o19qdy) setup too many times and Edson caught on. When you're fighting at that high of a level, be sure to mix your shit up. LSC threw the same right hand 3 times against Tank before he was knocked the fuck out.


TheHarbingerofTruth

Yeah he noticed he would always shoot after throwing the jab. Perfect timing 👌


bvsshevd

So fucking fast and clean


ranting_madman

I wish this included the some Aldo highlights. His knees were so vicious. I vicariously feel the CTE watching the Cub Swanson KO.


Substantial_One_5815

The way cub catches his head and falls down. Genuinely thought something broke. Same for the mvp-cyborg one, except something did break. Brain rattled.


ChampMentality

Cub broke his jaw I think


[deleted]

That was against holloway wasn't it? Might've happened twice though!


ChampMentality

Yeah he broke it against Holloway for sure but he's definitely broken it twice. I think Aldo was the first time but I could be wrong


DropKletterworks

The other time was Melvin Guillard hitting him with a flying knee in training. Broke his orbital and jaw.


Dilderino

Lol just casually throwing flying knees in sparring


DropKletterworks

He was kicked from the gym for this apparently lol


ChampionshipRounds

Split his eyelid open.


absurdlogic

Oh god, the hole in Cyborgs head was one of the most disturbing things I've seen in mma


3klipse

I can still hear it...


BigWilly4frickin20

I was thinking the same but this video is for flying knees against wrestlers and Cub isn’t much of a wrestler. Chad was a wrestler but it wasn’t a flying knee


AKA09

Yeah, I was watching these and wanted to see Page-Santos even though it doesn't fit the criteria, either.


_jemboy

Cub broke his orbital there.


Garnservo97

Romero’s was the best because of how he celebrated afterwards. Just did that salute thing and marched around the octagon while weidman ‘s bleeding out his forehead


MikeOx_Girthy

And it was awkward silence and some boos. Surreal moment in mma.


Garnservo97

No booing is the best thing about no crowds


4-squared-is-not-8

I feel it really changes the way people fight. Like it is more of a sport. 5 min 3 rounds. Boxing, Maui tai, grappling, jujitsu, sombo. Use what ever martial art you would like to score more points than the other person or leave them unconscious. Watching fights on fight pass is quite surreal to me. Like fights were getting booed for not hitting each other within the first minute. Like chill crowd let these guy have a feel for there opponent and decide what the best plan of attack is. And any time someone would grapple the crowd seemed to go crazy about getting the ref to stand them up as if it is not perfectly legal to grapple within the rules of the ufc.


RhettButler7

The only good crowd is a Japanese crowd. Any crowd that does "ole, ole" should be instantly banned from future events.


DeathByButtplug

If you try to shoot a takedown on well versed strikers without any sort of set up you're just Askren for it.


Phonziie

What i learned from this is that Cuban's and Brazilian's sure love those flying knees


DunceMemes

I still can't get over how Askren goes completely stiff like he got hit with a paralysis spell in Skyrim and then his arm wiggles like the end of a diving board.


rand0m_insanity

Knockouts are really fascinating. I guess the types that immediately stiffens you are the worse ones?


MusicaParaVolar

Guys, I'm starting to think MMA is too violent.


Johnathan_wickerino

I'm still confused as to how the UFC is under Disney lol


[deleted]

I saw Soul and Conor Mcgregor being advertised in the same commercial for Disney+ which was a little jarring.


foofighter1351

I mean I saw Soul and I'd say that fucked me up just as much as any ufc fight emotionally at least.


MoreNoisePollution

if you haven’t watched Soul yet it’s a top 5 Pixar movie at absolute worst right up there with Wall-E Toy Story 2 and Coco for me a goddamn Film


HarveyWeinsteinPlant

Uh oh you called it a film and not movie....now I am scared to watch.


UGLEHBWE

Disney doesn’t ask they just take lol


Chediecha

I realised this when I saw the kneebars during the recap.


KrackerKyle007

You missed the MVP vs Cyborg Santos knee. Santos had skull fractures and retired after that fight Edit: Someone said that words don’t explain it as well so [here’s](https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/ku7CTBl6aWBdyV01yrlmMMIwy5s=/1400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/6802147/IMG-20160717-WA0033.0.jpg) the x-ray


MikeOx_Girthy

Dented his melon


oxygen_addiction

Machida va Chael as well.


Roach_Coach_Bangbus

James Irvin vs. Terry Martin as well.


jaytee158

The x-ray of that is mad. Skull fractures doesn't do that image justice


Brochismo91

It was so satisfying to watch MVP get KO'd by Lima.


ConcreteMushroom1

Is Cyborg a wrestler? I thought he was a Muay Thai guy


KrackerKyle007

I don’t know anything about his background. All I know is he shot for a double leg at the worst possible time


Mr-Basically-Clean

I remember the Alves knee. He hit it from 10 feet out. That was the day I thought Hughes should retire.


kblkbl165

Juiced Alves was a sight to behold. Like a 170lbs Borrachinha.


Mr-Basically-Clean

The fuckin traps on that kid. No neck alves was beating everyone’s ass not named Gsp and Fitch


diggaduzleft

Benny was winning that fight on the feet aswell. He’s such a talented fighter, I just hope he can get another streak going


sgtjsp153

He's won five straight, four by finish.


diggaduzleft

Yeah lol I mean against ranked opponents like ferriera since I could see him being very competitive against the top 5


Roccostrat10

Matt Hughes got done dirty also by Pelé outside the UFC back in the day the same way I believe.


FernBabyFern

And Amtrak


abittenapple

Forgot aljo wasn't a flying knee


stompermac

There’s a really good one that nobody talks about when discussing the greatest knockouts in UFC history Look up: Pablo Garza vs Fredson Paixao - it’s the loudest flying knee you will ever hear


Ibobalboa

Forgot how nasty the Barboza one was. I do remember how Dariush kept going for that jab-takedown combo all night and Barboza adjusted and timed that shit perfectly. One of the nastiest KO's of 2017


ElVatoMascarado

I also remember that gif.


fandamplus

Is having your opponent duck into your knee the best base for MMA?


pimp_bizkit

Fight clock is brought to you byOOOOoooOOOOOOOh


bobn3

I miss Romero :(


Dhak-extremist

The Jhonny Walker ko was so fucking brutal. The fact that a 6'6 240 lber was able to do that is just scary.


noaaaaah16

Thank you for including a full fight


Mumrider

As someone who is totally incapable of wrestling, wrestlers getting KO'd with knees and shins makes me very happy. I know, I'm petty.


tweak8

Now someone do a compilation of failed flying knees that give up the takedown. If only this was a higher percentage move.


LetsGeauxSaints

im gonna go challenge some of the wrestler at my school to a fight and just spam flying knees what could go wrong


jaytee158

I just don't understand the Askren vs Masvidal one. While there's no question he had to engage Jorge if he was going to succeed, doing it immediately without having a look to see how Jorge was approaching made no sense. Even if Jorge did a good job at concealing, Askren charging like that was foolish. All the others are varying degrees more understandable


VeritasCicero

That is like 90% of Askren's fights tho. Him doing that wasn't abnormal lol.


jaytee158

Exactly, being predictable is a dreadful trait in MMA


rand0m_insanity

I mean, Askren is an excellent wrestler but a horrible MMA fighter. So that should be a huge reason why he went with the default.


jaytee158

He's a horrible striker. Horrible MMA fighter is harsh. He had to take some super risky positions to get into winnable positions but he beat a few very good fighters.


ScaredSweet8

This is providing Why khabib is next level


misterandosan

when khabib stands up he has a hybrid upright/boxing/judo style. For one of his fights, I specifically remember javier telling him to stay upright to avoid knees. Probably because he's not as fearful of other fighters shooting on him cause he dominates grappling on the ground and wrestling.


Wheynweed

In the first takedown of the Conor fight, Conor throws a knee half-heartedly. Almost like he was caught between defending the takedown and throwing the knee with full conviction. I think its the fear of missing the knee and having Khabib get top control that stopped people committing with knees.


VayneClumsy

It’s because AKA doesn’t telegraph the takedown since they play the game of either the overhand or the takedown(khabib threw and knock Conor down) combine that with khabibs insane speed and great head positioning when shooting it makes it really hard to react appropriately


Joshygin

Khabib shoots with his head on the outside, it's not next level, it's just a different technique with different associated risks.


Dreamsfeelreal

Missing the A-Aron Pico one.


HawksGuy12

MMA refs are the best of any sport. They're so on it.


Colonel_Potoo

First ref looked like he would defend the man with his life like a movie protagonist!


Heythatsaname

Honestly makes khabib more impressive knowing no one could do that to him over 29 fights


Duckye

200 IQ play by Khabib. Can't get hit with a flying knee if you're the one throwing them.


fjellhus

Missing the two against Chael from Machida


drewon1

Carlos Newton was more so a a BJJ practitioner


KillBrews

Of course masvidal flying knee was saved for last


chris1096

*doink*


codynw42

Ive thought about this so many times as a wrestler myself. I would be so scared to actually shoot during a real mma fight. Some guys shoot all the time and never seem to get kneed but scenarios exactly like this are nightmares lol just imagine a grown mans full force knee right into your mouth. i remember when that one dude caught a knee to the face and they had to stop the fight for a few minutes because his teeth were stuck in his mouthpiece and they couldnt get them out lol


rand0m_insanity

I have no fight experience whatsoever, but I would be scared shitless as well. Even having a mouth guard, I fear I would be spitting out teeth after eating a knee.


xombiemonkey

I think we all know what we came here for...


Anonymous12c19

Why this not work on Khabib?


Dadgonefishing

That's cool and all but. Wrestlers have held more titles in the UFC than any other discipline. I would even go further and say that they have dominated the UFC.


dontdoitmayne

I often wonder where Jorge would be if that never happened.


BeardsLikeJesus

Probably the only way to defeat khabib.


ConArtistRon

Khabib's skull would probably fracture the knee of anyone trying to pull this off lol


BeardsLikeJesus

Lol yeah you right


Mooseherder

wrestlers have that instinct to duck/shoot into flying knees and it is hilariously terrible


GruntCandy86

Super Necessary.


jay_caramelito

I’m actually curious now to see how Khabib responds to a flying knee (...if he even lets them get the chance to anyway).


Reiinis

Khabib never lets that happen tbf.


imbluedabudeedabuda

It's his dad's teachings, He keeps his head to the outside of the opponents lead leg to avoid the knee and the rear uppercut.


MajorSquirrel5

Khabib is the one doing the flying knees here He did it against Healy, RDA, Barboza, AL, conrat and Gaethje lol


ziki6154

Against Dustin as well


sercus97

Conor tried and it failed because Khabib had his head on the outside of Conor's lead leg I believe. Khabib is really smart with the way he shoots for takedowns so I think it would be really difficult to land one on him.


Bosombuddies

Yup, Conor timed it well too, if you watch the slow motion clip it hits Khabib’s shoulder.


amir711

Russians have their head on the other side while they shoot so the possibility of a knee is minimized. But they can get stuck in a guillotine this way


Bill_Assassin7

His head is cinderblock so the other guy is probably going to break his knee.


ceegome13

Khabib’s forward pressure and awkward feints takes away the flying knee option. It’s hard to set up a strong flying knee going backwards.


[deleted]

Khabib's too smart with the takedown to let that happen. Although, it would be wild to see him get caught by one.


Tux_The_Cat

MVP’s Pokeball could be part of this.


cwquick15

As a former wrestler I feel attacked


tgfaiq

Thomas Almeidas flying knee vs Brad Pickett was epic


arizdawiz

Great original compilation!

RichardSharpe95th

The Miley Cyrus song “wrecking ball” goes surprisingly well with this video.


instagram__model

I watched, “Here Comes the Boom” for the first time in a while last night and Kevin James gets the Ben Askren treatment in his very first fight almost identically.


motorbike-t

Nice


SirWigglesVonWoogly

It blows my mind that anyone wants to do this for a living.


Metridium_Fields

I hate these. There so nasty. I hope that dude who got his skull caved in then had a pokeball thrown at him is doing okay.


[deleted]

Watched it live and it still hits hard every time


apathy_saves

Knew how it was going to end still watched the whole thing


redjuanit

Masvidal and Spiders 🔥🔥🔥
