Watching a good knockout video will never get old. Sometimes it only takes a few seconds. Other times it’s much later in the bout. However, it’s always exciting and MMA fighter Davy Gallon delivered a KO for the ages in the final round of his recent fight at Probellum: London.

Facing UFC veteran Ross Pearson, Gallon waited until the third round to make his move. But when he did, man, the Frenchman got everyone buzzing. People on social media are still talking about it.

That’s because Gallon used a Rolling Thunder kick in the final minute to knock the 35-year-old Pearson out. It might just be the knockout of the year.
