Finish Friday 26 – Falling of the Legends

I must apologise for the lateness of this week’s Finish Friday post, but the supposed strikes in Cape Town meant I was stuck out of the office and incapable of connecting to the interwebs to bring you KO Muaythai & MMA goodness. Although I am kinda glad the strikes never happened in the end as that means no one got robbed or attacked unnecessarily.

This week has been a a bit of a roller coaster with one of the most shocking and unexpected results from Glory 12. For those that don’t know yet, Giorgio ‘The Doctor’ Petrosyan considered by many to be The G.O.A.T (Not a fan of that term) by many of the kickboxing world was KNOCKED OUT in last weekend’s Glory 12 event. According to his recorded, this has never happened before. So I feel you guys deserved more than just a GIF of the KO, so here it is and props to Andy Ristie on this massive achievement.

For those of you who don’t know anything about the kickinboxing world and need some sort of comparison, Think Chris Weidman KOing Anderson Silva, except even bigger in my mind. Just have a look at what Giorgi did to Dhazber Askerov back in 2009.

See what I mean? And because I brought up the Silva vs Weidman fight, Here you guys go. Hope ya’ll have a good weekend. I’m gonna be busy working on some stuff for you guys.
