Head-kick knockouts are brutal but how you know when a head-kick knockout is especially devastating?
Well… when the fighter who delivers it prays for the man he just kicked the sh*t out of instead of celebrating his win.
This is what happened during a Golden Ticket Fight Promotions event last weekend after Samuel Ilnicki’s foot connected with Solomon Rogers’ face. The kick was so hard, not only did Rogers go straight to sleep – his body froze in the middle as he collapsed head first onto the canvas.
It’s extremely scary when fighters get knocked out like that, leading to the referee immediately calling it off after Rogers collapsed on his head. You can clearly see the fear in Ilnicki’s face after scoring the win.
Watch the following video to see the impressively terrifying finish:
Not only did Ilnicki knockout Rogers, it also looked like he knocked out his tooth. We’ll see if Ilnicki gets a call from another promotion after this one.
What’s sad is, this was Rogers’ first ever MMA appearance, and while we wish him a speedy recovery and the best of luck for the future, we don’t blame him if he never wants to set foot inside a ring again. We bloody wouldn’t.
We seriously hope he’s fully recovered.
