This Might Be The Most Surprising MMA Knockout Of All Time

Unless you’re a diehard MMA fan, odds are you missed last month’s Xtreme Fighting Championship in Australia, and that’s a damn shame because it means you missed one of the strangest knockouts in the history of the sport.

James Vake and Michael McDaniel squared off in a battle of two dudes we’ve never heard of. Just a few minutes into the fight, McDaniel had Vake on his back, and everything seemed to be going just fine. After deciding that his submission attempt was going nowhere, McDaniel allowed Vake to get back on his feet, and that’s when the really weird shit kicked in.

Watch as McDaniel hits the floor as if some dark spirit flew by and stole every breath of life from him:

Unreal. But hey, at least we finally found something crazier than Gary Busey.

Here’s what XFC had to say about it:

“An unfortunate scene followed, which doctors have diagnosed due to a lack of oxygen to the brain during McDaniels submission escapes,” XFC’s post explained. “XFC is pleased to say that [McDaniel] is fit and healthy, and in the process of getting his medical clearance.”

So he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
