when Pete Williams KOed Marc Coleman with a head kick. At that point in MMA, head kicks were not a very common finish, and at the time Coleman was thought to be among the best while Williams was one step above a nobody.

To compare it to something from today, it would be like Kyle Bradley finishing Jon Fitch by flying spin kick.



Funny you should mention that. This is copied from my online sports betting account:

<<<<wager placed 09/06/2010 at 12:46am

Kyle Bradley to defeat Jon Fitch via Flying Spin Kick (+3200)

$100 wager placed to win $3200

wager only successful if end result is officially listed as Flying Spin Kick by Athletic Commission overseeing event.

Any other finish listed will result in a lost wager.

wager voids if Bradley/Fitch fight does not happen before 12/31/2012>>>>

It was supposed to happen in all three fights. It just didnt happen in the 2nd because BJs rib popped out of place.

Only 32/1 over two and a half years?

You should increase the wager, then book a card in Wash. with those two fighting each other, get AC approval, and then stipulate the rules as flying spin kicks being the only legal strikes.
Then you might be getting good odds.

though he still lost the fight, Kimo shocked the world when he proved Royce was human.




Sure, if by "world" you mean the hundreds in attendance and the dozens watching live on PPV.

lol.

I think the #1 Shocker has to be Napau high kick on CroCop. Followed by Serra KOing GSP.

Sure things like Rashad/Chuck, and Werdum/Fedor were incredible to see. But both were at least reasonable expectations when considering how the fight could play out. We knew that Rashad had fast hands and we knew that Werdum is one of the best BBJ players in HW MMA.

I don't think there was a single MMA fan on earth who didn't go "HOLY $HIT!!!" When they saw CroCop get floored like that by a taste of his own medicine. Gotta be #1 on my list.



Well MMA was a small world back then.
