In mixed martial arts, there is nothing crazier than a double knockdown. It’s rare and vicious, but can happen at any moment during a bout. Just ask Eder Lopes and Diogo Neves.

That’s exactly what happened during an MMA fight over the weekend in Lisbon, Portugal. In the first round, both ECE promotion fighters connected on huge left hooks that knocked them both to the canvas. However, only one of the fighters got up and was awarded the KO win.

The kickboxing world champion Lopes was named the winner of the bout, and the video of the double knockdown/KO in a cage from EnfusionLive went viral on social media.

The infamous double knockdown is one of the best knockouts, but it’s also one of the rarest sights in the sport.

You’ve seen it when MMA fighters Matt Mitrione and Fedor Emelianenko knocked each other down a couple of years ago. It almost happened again when Steven Peterson and Martin Bravo nearly knocked each other down with spinning backfists at UFC Fight Night 159.

Then, it finally returned when Lopes and Neves threw some heavy left hooks.

After the two punches connected, Lopes bounced back up like nothing happened, while Neves laid on the ground and waited for medical attention.

It all happened in the blink of an eye, and it looked vicious then. Adding a slow-motion replay to it, and you can tell Lopes landed his punch just that much harder.

Watching these videos never gets old and probably never will. It’s seriously entertaining and fascinating to watch two MMA fighters connect on punches at the exact same time. It’s also pretty hard to imagine getting up from such a vicious hit and act like absolutely nothing happened.

Give a lot of credit to Lopes for taking the left hook like a champ and getting to his feet almost immediately.
