At a regional fight card in Brazil, middleweights Jorge Filho and Cemey dos Santos threw down for a crazy 20 seconds, and it was certainly a crazy contest.
A lot of things happened before the stoppage though, as dos Santos and Filho were able to knock each other down at the same time.
The two men both landed right hands on each other and were simultaneously sent to the canvas. Dos Santos got up in time to land another right hand on a still down Filho, and the referee swooped in for the TKO stoppage.

However Dos Santos was the first to come to and he hopped right back to his feet and let fly with one more vicious hook to Filho, forcing the referee to jump in and bring an end to the contest.
That’s the 3rd notable instance of a fight featuring a double knockdown but an eventual winner by TKO this year. Matt Mitrione’s memorable win over Fedor Emelianenko at Bellator: NYC will go down as one of the crazier high-profile fights of the year.
