ANDThe Japanese Daichi Abe, during a fight corresponding to the Rizin 37 event, carried out an unsportsmanlike action that is being talked about in the world of MMA. He was facing Marcos Yoshio de Souza at Japan’s Saitama Super Arena and, in the second round of the matchup (176 pounds), the 30-year-old Abe landed a perfect right hand that knocked de Souza out completely.
The negative note is that Abe still went for his rival, already fallen on the ground, and threw a typical football kick to his face, without the referee being able to arrive in time to prevent it. Kicks with the opponent already down, as well as head butts, hair grabbing, manipulating small joints, biting… are prohibited actions in MMA.
The protagonist of the action, previously passed through the UFC and said goodbye to the company in 2018 with a mark of 1-3. His record is currently 11-5.
