Note: UFC often brings down Youtube videos, but I will do my best to keep the Kongo Barry Knockout video updated and working.

Just prior to midnight last night I was jumping around my apartment yelling. Dirk hadn’t hit a patented game winner. Nadal wasn’t ripping up the grass at Wimbledon.

It wasn’t even a Lyoto Machida front-kick. It was for UFC though, but it was from Cheick Kongo knocking out Pat Barry. Yes that’s right, the Kongo Barry undercard, turned last minute main event exceeded, it’s expectations by some indescribable number approaching infinity. At 2:48 seconds of the very first round, Pat Barry knocked out Cheick Kongo; except for

One minor thing – he didn’t actually knock him out. Oh and then 10 seconds later he “knocked him out again”, but again he didn’t actually knock him out. It sounds like I am just being playful with words, but watch the Kongo Barry knockout video below and you will know what I mean. In what the often hyperbolic (but in this case completely accurate) Joe Rogan described as the “most amazing comeback I have ever scene” Kongo regained his composure – sort of – and landed a picture perfect knockout punch that put Barry to sleep.

This all went down at the free UFC Fight Night card on Versus last night. Although UFC demand and ticket prices are much higher for PPVs, this card was significantly more exciting than the last two PPV cards. Big props to the fighters for coming to fight and not just to win. Hopefully the fighters at UFC 132 this weekend will come with the same intensity.

What do you all think? Do you agree with Joe Rogan, what this the most amazing comeback in UFC history? Get in on the action by check out tickets for upcoming UFC events below.
