Thursday December 24, 2015– It’s the end of the year, time to reflect on another BUSY year at AXS TV Fights! In 2015 there were 40 events, and 253 total fights! Of those 253 fights, there were 98 fights that ended by KO or TKO. It’s time now, to look at our favorite knockouts from 2015.
AXS TV FIGHTS returns in 2016 with CES MMA XXXII featuring two title fights as Luis Felix (14-8) defends his lightweight title against Waylon Lowe (16-7) and welterweight champ Gil de Freitas (18-5) puts his belt on the line against Chris Curtis (12-4) on Friday, Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
#5 Greg Rebello – CES MMA XXXI
When you’re 225 pounds, it only takes one shot to end a fight. Greg “Ribz” Rebello waited for his opening and then unleashed the overhand left for a one-punch knockout at CES MMA XXXI.
#4 Joel Scott – Legacy 42
The timing could not have been more perfect for Joel Scott. As soon as his opponent’s (Justin Rader) knee leaves the canvas, a brutal high knee sends him right back down. Goodnight Irene!
#3 Chris Mauceri – Lion Fight 24
Anything you can do, I can do better… Nicolas Parlanti tries the spinning back elbow against Chris Mauceri at Lion Fight 24. Mauceri responds with a much better one of his own.
#2 Julio Pena – Lion Fight 26
Whenever “The Don” Julio Pena steps in the ring, you’re in for a treat. Tired and limping from taking low kick after low kick, Pena pulls off the comeback win with one of the nastiest elbows you’ll ever see.
#1 Alex Morono – Legacy 44
Alex Morono had quite the year in 2015. Morono fought on AXS TV four times AND finished the year off winning the Legacy welterweight title. He also scored this awesome knockout at Legacy 44.
Sean Soriano – Legacy 48
Melvin Blumer – RFA 24
Chuck O’Neil – CES MMA XXVII
Gaston Bolanos – Lion Fight 24
Khalil Rountree – RFA 33
