Renzo GracieIf you’re familiar with the Gracie family, you know they’re better known for their jiu-jitsu than their striking.

On Nov. 22 back in 1996, Renzo picked up the only knockout win of his career with an up-kick to Oleg Taktarov. Watch the video below to relive the moment that took place exactly 17 years ago to the date.

Hat-tip to @MMAHistoryToday for the find.
