There’s something to be said about knockouts. The allure of a spectacular stoppage victory inside the Octagon is what draws fans to Mixed Martial Arts.
It’s not about the science of fighting, not about who’s better at scoring points with the judges. MMA has always been about the thrill of the unpredictable — that at any given moment, a fight can end at the blink of an eye.
Yet, there are fighters who are hit with everything but the kitchen sink — fighters who just have this natural propensity to absorb punishment. Even if you tag them with a shot that would put other, lesser fighters to sleep, these guys shake it off like it was nothing.
