15 second KO in European MMA promotion (Video)

One of the great parts of MMA is that it is so wildly unpredictable. At any moment, a strike that lands could be the decisive blow and any slight grappling mistake could wind up being your downfall. This unpredictability is what so many MMA fans have become accustomed to, and yet we are often still left in amazement at the outcomes of fights.

A brand new MMA promotion, Europa MMA Fighting Championship, had their first event this past weekend in England. In the main event of the evening, Max Coga took on Niklas Backstrom in a Featherweight tilt. The fight only lasted 15 seconds, and ended with a brutal front kick KO.

Watch the entire fight and KO in the video below. The fight starts around the 5:00 mark in the video:

Niklas Backstrom landed a perfectly placed front kick to the jaw of Coga that rocked him badly. After some follow up shots the referee was forced to step in and call an end to the bout. The finish came at only 15 seconds into the first round.

Right before the fight starts, the announcers speculate that the winner of the fight would likely move on to the UFC and possibly fight on the UFC Fight Night 41 card in Berlin. Backstrom is 7-0 after his KO victory, and could very well be on his way to the UFC.
