    I believe it was Tank Abbott’s debut, he destroyed his opponent and laid him out stiff, the commentary seemed shocked someone could get KO’d that bad.

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

    It was this.

    I remember thinking how crazy it was seeing someone get elbowed in the head until he was unconscious.

    Now is "normal".

    Yeah, they had no idea wtf they were doing. Notice that Big John didn't stop the fight, it was Remco (fighter on top) that stopped it.

    of course, obviously neither man could grapple for shit here.

    but those are 12-6 elbows that seem to be landing into the eyes and temple, getting KO'd with that seems horrifying.

    Actually, Remco was a grappler but I get what you're saying.

    I wanted to say this at first but I didn't think it might be what TS was looking for. Crazy enough, as soon as Pat gets off, Scott starts getting up.

    I mean he was clearly fucked up badly but I'm thinking TS meant some "Jeremy Stephens 'they don't fucking move'" type shit.

    Remco was 268 in that fight and Orlando was 170, and you could see Remco didn't want to hurt him, his face was like "oh no what have I done", and afterwards he looked sad. Remco was a gentleman.

    Shows you how defense has improved. No fighter would get the opportunity to finish like that now.

    Remco was a legit Black belt at a time when those were not handed out like fucking Happy Meal toys.

    First non Brazilian to compete in the absolute class at the bjj world championships

    That was pretty unfortunate, but did look intentional. I have never seen that one before!

    The guy at the bottom didn't really in the first one looked like he had no clue what to do, almost like he hadn't been on the mat before.

    definitely not the first, but nothing before or after has captured the same biblical style knockout feeling. this was also with no rounds, no time limit, all the fighters and big john mcarthy laughed at tank for wanting to wear gloves....... lol

    I think Remco was a Japanese jujitsu/judo black belt at the time. Of course after his run in the UFC he started BJJ and he's now at least a 4th degree BJJ black belt.
