Slam KO's: They're so hot right now. Hotter than Hansel. In the past month alone, we've seen a powerbomb knockout in an MMA fight, a powerbomb knockout in a Jiu-Jitsu match, and a mat-assisted faceplant knockout that probably doesn't technically qualify as a slam but I'm including it anyway to uphold the ever-important rule of threes.
Last weekend at Next Level Fight Club 6, we were treated to probably the most ferocious slam knockout yet in a heavyweight tilt between Allen Crowder and Chase Gamble.
And boom goes the dynamite.
Crowder, who was stepping into the cage for the first time since 2015 and riding back-to-back TKO losses, delivered the highlight reel finish after grabbing hold of a single leg takedown in the closing moments of round one, improving his record to 6-2 overall.
Gamble, on the other hand, fell to 2-3 after stepping in for the injured Richard White at the last minute. Say what you will about the guy, but he lives up to his last name.
