Sometimes, a miraculous event goes down that makes you take your eyes away from the UFC's fight empire. Of course, you have Bellator, WSOF, and RIZIN, but there's countless fringe and regional organizations filled with mortal combat just a click away. After all, three of the top ten craziest kicks in MMA on our list came from small, regional cages. If you're willing to excavate a little bit, you might find gold like this knockout at Fight Time 34 where a fighter was knocked out via face plant!?

Oh, on the face! Luis Raul Alvarez used a judo throw to drill Martin Georges' nose straight down into the canvas, knocking him completely out. The hammer fists to the side of Georges' head were just an unfortunate, violent bonus.
