Brown Paid the Price with Price’s Hammerfists at UFC Fight Night 133
When you thought you’ve already seen all kinds of knockouts in MMA but Niko “The Hybrid” Price found a way to surprise you with his hammerfists defence against Randy Brown. No one didn’t see that coming, though!
The 28-year old Price made a remarkable and rare type of win n Saturday at UFC Fight Night 133 at CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho for the Welterweight title bout. No one hasn’t seen this bottom position before.

After finding himself stuck on the bottom right after going for a leg lock against Randy Brown (10-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC), Price (12-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) figured he might as well give it a try to defend himself by hooking Brown with hammerfists from his back. The Hybrid seemed to be uncontrollable until his opponent got knocked out on his first threw.
But as Price was quick to point out, not only did he knock Brown out from his back – he did it with his left hand.
Price Being Extra Giggly After the Welterweight Title Bout
“I hooked it, I went to pass (the leg) over, I saw his chin, and I was like, ‘Let’s see what happens,’” Price said in his post-fight interview. Watch his full post-fight interview here.
When Brown appeared unconscious, Price was quick to alert the referee, Herb Dean. After all, he said there was a reason for unneeded punishment.
“The last couple, I didn’t really hit him too hard because he was already out. I’m not trying to ruin their careers. We’re here to make each other better and be great fighters and be awesome.”
The game ended at 1:09 of round 2. The win puts Price at 4-1-1 in the UFC and 12-1-1 in his MMA career, with 8 of those wins coming via knockout. With Randy Brown’s first knockout defeat, he drops to 4-3 UFC, 10-3 MMA.
Price Well-Earned It
Right after the fight, Price told in an interview that he earned $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus. Well, with that unforeseen inimitable defence, Price well-earned it!
“I just kept hitting him, and he went out with the first one.”
“Don’t sleep on me. I’ll get you from anywhere!” This only shows that Price is not afraid to turn things around after the “not so good” first round of his UFC Boise fight with Brown.
When watching UFC fights, expect the unexpected!
