Knockout ‘à la Anderson Silva’ leaves commentators and UFC world ‘in shock’

Michael Chandler lands a spectacular knockout against Tony Ferguson on the main card of UFC 274


on the main card of UFC 274, Michael Chandler landed the best knockout of the year so far when he landed a spectacular kick in the face of Tony Ferguson. And the submission, in the best Anderson Silva style, left the MMA world “in shock”.

Starting with the official UFC broadcast team. Daniel Cormier, Joe Rogan and Jon Anik went wild as soon as Chandler connected the kick, right at the beginning of the 2nd round. On social media, the reactions were similar.

Several fighters were “speechless” for the moment. Niko Price, for example, managed to just blurt out a “p.. that gave birth”, followed by a scared emoji. Chris Daukaus, Alonzo Menifield, Eryk Anders, Javid Basharat and others, even Chicago Bulls NBA player Alex Caruso, had the same reaction.

“My God in heaven” was the most seen phrase on social media after the knockout.
