    The finish by Moraes immediately reminded me of Hansen's KO against Azeredo.

    In both instances, a body kick turned into a devastating knee to the head because of the opponent ducking down for a shot.





    Incidentally, Joachim Hansen has scored two additional counter knee KO's (just straight knees, not body kicks landing at the knee) to opponents who lowered their head (possibly going for a clinch / takedown).

    I'm wondering if there have been any other instances of body kicks landing at the knee for the KO.

    I believe Dillashaw went for a head kick against Issei Tamura but caught him with the knee instead. KO’d Tamura good though.

    As a more recent example, Humberto Bandenay threw 2 body kicks at Martin Bravo. First one landed right to the liver and Bravo ducked right into the second kick, caught a flush knee to the face, and went completely stiff.

    Never knew what that meant. Always heard it as taking a dab of wax in the cannabis world but had to google that shit you posted.

    Dodson did that to Moraga, but it wasn't a clean KO. Result was eventually a TKO, but the stoppage was a bit iffy.

    Kick-knee knock outs seem to always result in a walk off, as if the striker is surprised and don't quite know what happened ;)

    I did that once in training. Partner tries to throw right cross and left kick. I see the cross and duck straight into the knee. BAM!! Thank God he hit only the side of my head but it still was one of hardest hits I ever took.

    I made a thread on that. Kicks seem to result in more lucky KOs than do punches.
