VFD Sports Marketing Fight Of The Week

October 7, 2014

When looking back through the history of MMA, there are so many important fights that not only started and cemented fighter’s legacies, but also changed the MMA landscape forever.

 

 

One of those historic bouts was at PrideFC Critical Countdown on 6/20/04 between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Ricardo Arona from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. In this fight, “Rampage” finished Arona with what is arguably the most devastating KO in MMA history, power-bombing Arona while in an arm-in triangle choke. Check it out below:

 

 

Rampage changed the landscape of MMA with this KO by making the body slam a new possibility out of an arm triangle, which had never been done before. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention and Quentin landed what is still the most famous body slam in MMA history.
