An inside low kick followed by a Jouban (16-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC) left hand across the jaw was all it took to leave Saunders (21-9-2 MMA, 9-6 UFC) in a heap, with his leg bent awkwardly underneath him in the classic pose of a man who is not getting up anytime soon (via Twitter).
Now that’s how you snap a two-fight losing streak and make people remember you in the process.
This one was a firefight pretty much from the word “go,” with both guys landing some solid shots in the first round.
Still, it was Jouban’s work chipping away at Saunders’ legs that eventually paid dividends. By the second round, Saunders was having trouble simply holding himself up. And when Jouban took his leg out from under him midway through the round, it left Saunders stumbling forward an easy target for the straight left.
It was about as clean a knockout as you’re ever going to see, and it was just what Jouban needed after losing two in a row, and with his son in the crowd at Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.
To make the weekend even better? According to Jouban, now they’re headed for Disneyworld. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he ends up with some extra bonus money to spend while he’s there, either.view original article >>
