Davy Gallon Wins MMA Bout With Incredible 'Rolling Thunder' Kick Knockout
| Last updated
An MMA fighter managed to end a fight last night in spectacular fashion by knocking his opponent out with what's now known as a 'rolling thunder' kick.
Seriously, you'll want to have a look at this.
The fight, between French fighter Davy Gallon and UFC veteran Ross Pearson was brought to an abrupt end when Gallon left his feet, went head over heels, and connected violently with the jaw of his opponent.
Pearson did the only decent thing to do in the situation and went to the canvas, completely sparked out.
The fight was the main event at last night's MTK MMA: Probellum event and was well into the third round when the Frenchman decided enough was enough.
His wild spinning kick left the British fighter sprawled out on the deck, and - just like that - the fight was finished.
Obviously, the finisher has become the talk of the online MMA community.
One Twitter user wrote: "KO of the year via rolling thunder. So good it makes the commentator swear."
A second user tweeted: "But take a bow Davy Gallon. That's the KO of the year for sure. Don't think I've ever seen anyone pull off a rolling thunder kick before and KO someone with it."
A third said: "Christ on a bike what a KO... this is literally in the final minute of the final round! Flying Rolling Thunder KO."
Hey, it's pretty impressive, you have to admit. It's one thing to beat someone down by just being harder than them, it's another altogether to pull off a precise and devastating move just like this one.
As mentioned earlier in the article, it was such a good kick that the commentator briefly let the veneer of professionalism slip and simply cried out: "Oh s***!"
His co-commentating colleague added: "OH MY GOODNESS ME!".
That about sums it up.
Anyway, off walked Davy Gallon having produced the most badass move of the night and leaving London with his 18th MMA victory as a professional.
As for his opponent, he left with - you'd have to imagine - a fat lip, and some soul-searching yet to be done.
Pearson is now without a win in the octagon since February 2018.
One thing is for certain, with the end of the year fast approaching, surely Gallon's sublime skills have written him into the conversation for knockout of the year?
When they draw the annual lists up, that'll be fresh in the memory, at least.
Unless you're Ross Pearson, that is. He probably doesn't remember a great deal about it.
