Spinning backfist, double knockdown highlight crazy Thursday in fighting

There’s never a break when it comes to global combat sports events, and some of Thursday’s local shows produced memorable highlights.

First up, a wild double knockdown in Brazil. In a FLC 6 bout which that lasted a mere 20 seconds, Jorge Filho (6-3) ate a hard shot from Cemey dos Santos (1-2) as he simultaneously delivered one of his own. Filho handed out the worst of it, though, and managed to pounce on his opponent for the quick finish (via Twitter):

On the other side of the globe, a Lethwei rules bout between Kouhei Tokkeshi and Saw Min Aung came to a brutal conclusion courtesy of a hellacious spinning back elbow (via Twitter):

There could be even more memorable highlights to come in a loaded MMA weekend. Bellator, LFA, ONE Championship, Victory FC, and UFC all host fight cards.
