One of the Most Vicious Knockouts in MMA History

1 Like

Who doesn’t love a good, clean knockout? Well, unless you’re not a fan of any form of violence, you’ll likely find sheer satisfaction in seeing an individual get their systems shut off by a single strike.

And if you’ve been watching this sport for a long time now, you were likely in awe when you witnessed Igor Vovchanchyn knock out Francisco Bueno at PRIDE 8 in ‘99.

This was actually a wicked mismatch if you look at it on paper. Bueno was an experienced grappler and competed in the ADCC, but he entered the contest with merely two pro fights under his belt. He also gave up 13 pounds in weight.

Vovchanchyn, at the time, already fought a total of 41 times and had compiled a 38-2 (1 NC) record. 31 of those wins ended by KO. Every single one of them happened in the first round.

Igor was an absolute killer. Loved watching him fight

Didn’t Bueno talk shit after this? Saying it was a lucky shot or something?

There’s also another angle of this KO that I’ve only seen once, and haven’t been able to find it again. Shows a close up of Bueno’s face during the KO and you can see his eyes go glossy as consciousness leaves his body.

He got knocked out 3 or 4 times on the way down also

That KO was no bueno. Falling forward in slow motion and eating a few more like that was brutal.

That clean right he ate while springing forward from the cage. God damn.
