This Week in Knockouts: Petr Yan, Michael Duut, Cosmo Alexandre and much more

New, comments

Check out all the best knockouts from this past September 24-30 week of fights, including kickboxing and Muay Thai.

Just because there wasn’t a UFC event this week, doesn’t mean there wasn’t any combat sports action worth watching. The MMA world never stops turning for the really hardcore fight fan. Throw in some kickboxing and some Muay Thai and there’s plenty action out there for those in need of a fix.

Fortunately MMA Twitter stalwarts Caposa, Jolassanda, and Jonnyboy are tending the streams to help make sure nothing goes unseen.

Jungle Fight, Absolute Championship Berkut, and Fight Nights Global – along with some smaller shows – all put on events this last week, providing plenty of high quality knockouts. Glory Kickboxing held their own event as well, along with Lion Fights Muay Thai. So, sit back and enjoy the finishes
