    Both of Thompson's feet appear to be on the ground, so it doesn't qualify.

    To my knowledge yes.

    I saw the posted gifs but none of them are air-ko's, as in the KO'd guy is mid air when being punched.

    Most of them the ko'd guy gets swooped off his feet cause of the punch.

    I feel like multiple people have been KOed while attempting a flying knee but I can't remember any specific examples right now.

    There was one in the IFL but I can't remember off the top of my head who it was. Antonio McKee might have been one of the fighters but I'm not sure

    Didn't Mousasi knock Jacare out with that upkick when Jacare jumped at him?
