Ary Santos knocks himself out while trying to escape a submission
Whoops. A submission escape didn’t go as prepared for Ary Santos, and it wound up with him getting knocked out and Rangel de Sa winning the uninhabited Shooto super light-weight championship.
The 2 met as one of the included contests of July 26’s Shooto Brazil: Solidariedade event in Rio de Janeiro.
Ary Santos knocks himself out, Rangel de Sa wins Shooto title
About 100 seconds into the bout, de Sa had Santos captured in a guillotine with his own back to the cage wall. In an effort to escape the submission hold, Santos selected de Sa up in the air and tried to knock him down to the mat.
What rather followed was Santos knocking his own head into the canvas. De Sa handled to re-lock in the choke, however at this moment, it was unneeded and the damage had actually been done. The referee actioned in and pulled de Sa off of Santos simply under 2 minutes into the bout, offering de Sa the win and Shooto super light-weight gold.
Possibly among the most widely known self-inflicted knockouts in Mixed Martial Arts came at The Ultimate Fighter 5 Ending. Gray Maynard tried to slam Rob Emerson however wound up landing on his own head, knocking himself unconscious. At the exact same time, Emerson tapped out due to discomfort, leading to a no-contest.
Other self-inflicted knockout victims consist of Mark Kerr (vs. Yoshihisa Yamamoto) and Matt Lindland (vs. Falaniko Vitale) and Jarred Brooks (vs. Jose Torres).
The de Sa-Santos bout wasn’t the only strange finish of the Shooto Brazilcard Thiago Silva beat Fabricio Martins by disqualification with simply one second left in the opening round after Martins landed a prohibited knee.
