Welcome to the most up-to-date version of Missed Fists in which we shine a light on fights from throughout the globe that may well have been forgotten in these busy times in which it appears to be like there’s an MMA demonstrate each individual other working day.
We have some catching up to do, do not we? There’s a cornucopia of clips this week and a good deal of MMA to eat, but initial we’ll begin off with a emphasize from the boxing planet that will transport you back to the magical, idyllic time of 2016…
Melvin Lopez vs. Yeison Vargas
Keep in mind the Mannequin Obstacle? 1 of those wacky memes that was definitely clever the initially time you observed it and step by step additional cloying with each new version that arrived out? Nicely, it is not back in comprehensive drive, but Melvin Lopez did change Yeison Vargas into a statue at an M&R Boxing Promotions present in Miami on Thursday.
Knockout of the 12 months contender in Miami! 22yr old Nicaraguan Melving Lopez (23-1, 14 KO’s) completely folds Yeison Vargas (17-five) in their bantamweight contest for a TKO-one victory. Luckily, Vargas left the ring beneath his personal energy and appears to be to be Ok. pic.twitter.com/Q3RVZDWhkI

That guy is frozen until eventually he hits the canvas. The only thing that would have designed this finish crazier was if Vargas sprang back to his toes in reverse like a scene fromTenet.
Taio Asahisa vs. Hiroki
Hideaki Yamazaki vs. Rukiya AnpoHiromi Wajima vs. Raseasing Weerasakreck
Not to be outdone, the K-1 Environment GP 2020 from Osaka, Japan, this past Tuesday featured a handful of KOs that are not just contending for Best of the 7 days, but it’s possible Greatest of the 12 months.
In the classification of Finest Head Kick, here’s Taio Asahisa just smoking cigarettes an presently bloody and battered Hiroki.
Ought to have attached an NSFW warning to that just one.
In a 65-kg title battle, Hideaki Yamazki would not be denied the KO that he so desperately craved and he hunted Rukiya Anpo down until he could detonate his chin with a remaining hand bomb.
Lastly, Hiromi Wajima’s low kick KO of Raseasing Weerasakreck could possibly not compare to the preceding two, but I never know if I’ve ever witnessed a person seemingly stunned into unconsciousness by a kick throughout the thighs (?).
All you viewers with a PhD in human anatomy, sense totally free to clarify this 1 to us.
Petsukhumvit vs. Pakkalek
In excess of at Rajadamnern Stadium (no cost replay offered on YouTube) in Thailand on Thursday, Petsukhumvit authored a additional standard leg kick end when he kicked Pakkalek’s leg out of his leg.
As the aged adage goes: If at first you don’t be successful, kick kick again.
Sam Patterson vs.Felipe Silva
Obtaining back again to MMA, UFC vet Felipe Silva ran into a buzzsaw at Courageous CF 41 final Thursday, strolling ideal into a lights-out punch from Sam Patterson.
Terrific occupation by the referee there who instantly recognized that Silva experienced no clue exactly where he was and jumped in there to pull Patterson off of him. This has been a tough stretch for Silva, who was taken out in just forty four seconds in his former outing.
Aaron Khalid vs. Mick Stanton
Jake Hadleyvs. Shajidul Haque
Having back again into the thick of factors with its 1st publish-outbreak exhibits is Cage Warriors, which is holding 3 functions on back-to-back-to-back days, starting off with Cage Warriors 114 yesterday (available on UFC Struggle Go).
Welshman Aaron Khalid stole the show, offering opponent Mike Stanton zero time to get going.
The official time of this end is :28 of round a single, indicating it took Khalid just seconds to latch on to Stanton, go into posture for the anaconda choke, and cinch it in to the position that Stanton did not know how a great deal difficulties he was in until eventually it was far too late.
As amazing as that was, coming in a near second for the very best finish from Cage Warriors 114 is Jake Hadley. “White Kong” improved to 6- with a overall body kick on Shajidul Haque that appears like it could possibly have been partly blocked, but not plenty of to stop Haque from crumbling.
Hadley enhanced to six- and he’s just 24 a long time outdated. It seems like he’s upcoming to obstacle for the flyweight title against Luke Shanks, who won it from Samir Faiddine later on in the evening.
By the way, here’s Shanks totally embracing Pandemic-chic.
Zulkarnaiyn Kamchybekov vs. Mike Anderson
Kelly Claytonvs. Hailey CowanJosh Quinlan vs. Pete Keepers
Even though you are kicking it on Struggle Move, why not verify out the most up-to-date from Cage Fury FC and Legacy Combating Alliance, two promotions that a short while ago resumed functions. At Cage Fury FC 85 past Friday in Tunica, Miss., we saw Zulkarnaiyn Kamchybekov present some gorgeous palms and then some awful combat IQ.
He just can’t possibly have been aiming for something other than the top of Mike Anderson’s cranium.
The good news is for Kamchybekov, the blow was ruled to have linked about the shoulder and neck so it was not considered an unlawful strike. Which is a smaller comfort and ease for Anderson, who went on to be concluded in the third spherical anyway.
At LFA 91 in Sioux Falls, S.D. two months ago, we noticed a pair of notable finishes that experienced to be recorded in the hallowed halls of Missed Fists.
Hailey Cowan entered this demonstrate with a ton of hoopla behind her and justifiably so. She appears to be destined for the UFC with a tiny much more seasoning. Her matchup with Kelly Clayton (just one-two prior to battling Cowan) proved way as well spicy though as she fell prey to the Hype Curse that has befallen the likes of Edmen Shahbazyan, Sean O’Malley, and Maycee Barber this calendar year.
Shades of Tito-Ortiz Ryan Bader there. Way to make the most of an chance, Ms. Clayton!
The finest LFA 91 complete while arrived courtesy of Josh Quinlan, who stole this week’s “Humpty Dumpty” award with this ending sequence that had Pete Keepers breaking out the robot (RIP Ryan Jimmo).
Dmitriy Shestakov vs. Saygid Abdulaev
MMA Collection-14 went down in Kalingrad, Russia, final Saturday, promoted by Preventing Championship Pankration. We carry this up because we could not depart out our next system kick KO of the 7 days, this just one of the spinning wide variety by Dmitriy Shestakov.
Take note the delayed reaction. Saygid Abdulaev’s brain was telling him, “We bought this!” and then his human body quickly replied, “Big nope there, bud.”
Daniel Zellhuber vs. Miguel Arizmendi
Francesco Patron Manzo vs. Benjamin Mendez SalmonPedro Pena vs. Andres FarreraJose Armendariz vs. Jonathan Saavedra
Mexico has a extensive and proud record of generating standout boxers, but they’ve seemingly obtained their jiu-jitsu on monitor down there far too. Case in level, here’s Daniel Zellhuber from LUX 010 in Nuevo Leon breaking out a lovely calf slicer against Miguel Arizmendi past Friday.
Probably even far better than that was Francesco Patron Manzo’s toe keep of Benjamin Mendez Salmon.
Of class, the card was not with no its standup thrills. Pedro Pena rushed Andres Farrera like a young Phil Baroni in what was a unforgettable pro debut for both of those guys (for unique explanations), whilst Jose Armendariz dropped Jonathan Saavedra with a KO shot from the hip.
Imam Batsaev vs. Cyrille Manga
Speaking of newcomers, beginner Cyrille Manga experienced a depressing time of it when he fought Imam Batsaev at Enfusion Cage Occasion Rookies in Alkmaar, The Netherlands, previous Friday.
It’s unclear if Manga was hunting to get the cage to keep from slipping or if he was just absolutely dazed or if he imagined he may be able to really tear by the fence and escape. Whichever was going on, it ended in his doom.

Nobumitsu Osawa vs. Max The Human body
For their names alone, you that know Nobumitsu Tyson vs. Max The System (recognized as Mark Moleke at a single level in his everyday living, apparently) from Shooto 2020 Vol. six in Tokyo very last Saturday was creating the Skipped Fists reduce. It does not harm that Mr. Tyson’s looping left hand KO was rather sweet.
Osawa just catches him at the close of the punch. I guess The Chin of The Physique wasn’t very up to snuff.
The Simply call-Up
Congrats to Skipped Fists alum Ludovit Klein, who would make his UFC debut this Saturday at UFC 253 on a week’s see on the back of two hellacious head kicks that just so took place to be highlighted in this article in editions previous.
Sad to say, Klein skipped fat for his featherweight combat with Shane Youthful, which puts a slight damper on the situation, but that matchup is even now a just cannot pass up one and you get the perception that Klein is going to end up in one more spotlight clip one particular way or a further.
Right up until future week all people, recall to constantly have by yourself with the exact same grace, dignity, and aplomb of K-1’s Taro.
