Hisaki Kato lands a nasty superman punch to knockout Joe Schilling at Ballator 139 on Friday night.
By Robby Sabo
Oftentimes the crap-talking that goes on the world of MMA becomes absolutely hilarious.
Regardless of who it is, each fighter makes it his mission to pump himself or herself up to the max. In other sports we get the occasional humble character. In MMA, no chance.
That’s why this particular knockout puts the cherry on top of MMA trash-talk.
Prior to Bellator 139 where he’d face Hisaki Kato, Joe Schilling told MMA Fighting this:
“I just think anybody that says they’re gonna stand up with me is just blowing smoke.”
Schilling is a known knockout artist who fully expected Kato to take things to the ground early and often.
Well, that’s not exactly what went down.
Kato promptly landed a devastating superman punch that ended the match right there and then. No controversial decision needed.
