Video: Fighter wins his bout, with a head kick, from his back

Dann StuppTake a moment to let that headline really sink in.

It’s not everyday you see a knockout like this one.

At Saturday’s Wawan MMA event in Kuwait, Jordanian middleweight Hussam Qashou pulled off the improbable knockout. Check out the highlight, via MMA gif-maker extraordinaire @caposa (via Twitter):

As his opponent stood over him, Qashou scooted, readjusted, briefly lifted and then blasted him with a big second-round head kick. Qashou then climbed atop the cage to celebrate in front of a stunned crowd.

Here’s a bit of the celebration (via Qashou’s Instagram page):
