Michael B. Jordan Took Real KO Punch While Filming "Creed"

He got knocked out!

Michael B. Jordan put on one of the better performances of 2015 in the "Rocky" spin-off "Creed."

Aside from a great plot, story and acting, is this very real behind-the-scenes shot that Sylvester Stallone took, where Jordan is preparing with some phantom punches before getting knocked (what appeared to be) clean out from a crushing hit to the jaw.

Talk about tough.
