Greatest MMA fight ends with crazy elbow

“In their wildest fantasies, the people who created the first Ultimate Fighting Championship couldn’t have imagined what would go down 25 years to the weekend later. UFC Denver was headlined by a bout between Mexico’s Yair Rodriguez and South Korea’s Chan Sung Jung that was everything you could have imagined the sport evolving into, a high-level battle of skill and will. But that in and of itself was before one of the craziest finishes ever seen in the history of MMA. After battling for nearly 25 bloody and bruising minutes in the featherweight main event, the duo engaged in one final rush. And Rodriguez ducked The Korean Zombie’s flurry and knocked him cold with a ridiculous counter elbow, sending Jung face-first to the mat just before the horn sounded. With that, a Fight of the Year contender and a Knockout of the Year contender converged to make for an all-time classic fight, as Rodriguez won via knockout at 4:59 of the final round.”
