Lion Fight 38 delivered brutal KOs, including a jumping head kick and spinning elbow

Dann StuppWith no major MMA events this weekend, what are fight fans to do? You could do worse than checking out these knockout-filled Lion Fight 38 highlights.

The AXS TV-televised muay Thai promotion touched down Friday at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., and the KOs came in all forms.

In the main event, welterweight champion Regian Eersel (47-4) picked up a fifth-round knockout victory over Matous Kohout (36-10) with the help of punches, elbows and knees from all angles.

However, the undercard also finished featured some nifty knockouts. Super lightweight Jafar Toshev (2-0) stopped Jonathan George (2-3) with a jumping head kick, and super middleweight Cris Mims (1-0) halted Brian Bogue (0-1) with a spinning elbow.

Additionally, super Cruiserweight Steve Walker (2-0) battered Robert Morrow (0-1) before landing a big fight-ending right hand.

Check out all of the highlights above.
