Sean Salmon was brutally knocked out last night at the Strikeforce show in San Jose, California.
Salmon was facing Jorge Santiago when he was struck by a flying knee to the jaw. Salmon crashed to the canvas and his body went rigid. His head was turned to the right and his hands remained motionless in mid-air. His legs remained hovered slightly above the canvas and his toes were tightly curled. Within this stiff position, Salmon’s limbs quivered and Santiago punched him in the face once.
It was a disturbing sight to say the least, and an even more brutal knockout than the one he suffered against Rashad Evans in January.
Jeff Sherwood snapped THE perfect photo of the blow that finished Salmon.
