A lot of boxing fans know that the Marvin Hagler versus Thomas Hearns fight was one of the most thrilling matches of all time. Back in 1985, the two boxers went back and forth for unstoppable actions in three nailbiting rounds.
More than 30 years after, we have found its counterpart in the mixed martial arts in terms of actions, but the fight lasted for just half a minute. An MMA bout staged in Virginia last week brought spectators to the most insane and wildest knockout sequence of the year.
The fight featured Mumia Abu Dey Ali and Mitch Aguiar, who have recently started their MMA career. Dey Ali carried a 2-1 win-loss record coming into the match while Aguiar stood at 1-0 slate.
Starting the match on a strong note, Dey Ali immediately threw a left-handed shot, hitting Aguiar’s temple. That shot cost him his first knockdown of the match.
Not wanting to surrender early, Aguiar stood up off the mat but was noticeably a little dazed. He was able to come back in the fight, but Dey Ali was just too eager to finish him off.
Dey Ali continued to show his aggressive form to his opponent but he some of his punches and kicks failed to connect. Aguiar went for an attempt to take Dey Ali to the mat but also missed.
After exchanging punches, Aguiar delivered his own version of a left-hand shot, this time it was Dey Ali who suffered a knockdown. Seeing an opportunity to inflict more damage, Aguiar charged at Dey Ali, but the latter avoided it as he turned his back, which caused Aguiar to flip over him.
Dey Ali got up quickly before Aguiar could, giving the former the chance to put the finishing touches. Dey Ali did not allow Aguiar to get back to his feet as he gave him a killer left hand that knocked him down for the second time.
As he laid flat on the mat, Dey Ali drilled the dagger with another solid punch.
The knockout gave Dey Ali his third win in his young career while Aguiar absorbed his first defeat.
