There are few things in combat sports like a knockout birthed out of a spinning technique. Mike Shipman got a good one at today’s BAMMA 31 event.
Shipman (11-1) put a hurting on Yannick Bahati (8-3) in the co-headliner, which took place as The SSE Arena in London, landing a massive spinning backfist for the highlight-reel knockout in the third round of their middleweight championship bout (via Twitter):
With the victory, Shipman pushed his winning streak to 11 fights. The Brit fell short in his MMA debut in June 2013 but has emerged on top in every fight since, finishing all of his opponents in the process.
The brutal stoppage of Bahati may have been his best, though, because not only did he land the spinning blow flush to the chin, he left his opponent laying face-first on the canvas to win BAMMA’s 185-pound crown.
