After that, Loughnane didn’t land single shot with his right arm, which he later revealed he had broken.
This is the moment English MMA fighter Brendan Loughnane knocked out his opponent with a vicious head kick at ACB 75 in Stuttgart, Germany, last weekend – despite breaking his arm mid-fight.
Loughnane, a 27-year-old Manchester native who was taking part in his third fight under the banner of Russian MMA promotion ACB (Absolute Championship Berkut), against Paata Tschapelia from Georgia, finished the night with a yet another knockout.
FINAL MOMENT OF THE FIGHT STARTS AT THE 16:15 MARK
While the KO became the ninth in his 15-3 professional career, it was also the first to come from a head kick.
The KO became even more remarkable when the reason emerged as to why Loughnane was using his legs to finish his opponent in the last minutes of the third round.
In the middle of the second round, the Englishman threw a powerful spinning back fist strike at the Georgian challenger, which landed on his opponent’s shoulder as he was blocking the shot.
