This week’s Muay Thai KO of the Week is as flashy as it is devastating. Everyone loves spinning stuff. It looks cool and if done right it can end a fight in a heart beat.
At Lion Fight 24 in September of 2015, Chris Mauceri and Nicolas Parlanti squared off. This is the perfect example of what can go wrong when throwing a spinning attack and what can go right. In the third round Parlanti was backed up against the ropes and attempted a spinning elbow which was blocked by Mauceri, he then returned a spinning elbow of his own that landed flush on the jaw of Parlanti. It was lights out instantly.
