(Video) UFC middleweight KOs himself in strange turn of events

Knocking oneself out is one of the rarest finishes one might witness on in MMA event. On Saturday night at UFC  Atlantic City, one of the most odd incidents took place in recent UFC history.

The peculiar incident transpired during the second match of the evening. The event featured Andre Petroski and Jacob Malkoun, two promising middleweight contenders aiming to ascend the ranks.

As the bout progressed into the second round, a sudden and bewildering sequence of events ensued. Petroski initiated a takedown attempt early in the round. He aimed to bring Malkoun to the canvas. However, his endeavor proved futile as he struggled to secure the takedown.

In a perplexing turn, Petroski appeared to lose his footing in the center of the Octagon. He ultimately collapsed to the mat in an unexpected manner.

Seizing the opportunity, Malkoun swiftly capitalized on Petroski’s vulnerable position. He delivered a series of strikes until the referee intervened, stopping the match.

Following his initial success in the UFC with a commendable 5-0 record, Andre Petroski’s fortunes have taken a downturn. He has now experienced two consecutive losses. This unexpected setback adds a layer of complexity to his journey as he is an alumnus of The Ultimate Fighter season 29.

Meanwhile, Jacob Malkoun’s career trajectory has been characterized by a series of ups and downs since the commencement of 2022. Notably, his previous bout ended controversially with a disqualification. This was due to an illegal elbow against Cody Brundage last September.

While victories and defeats are customary in the sport, moments like these show the unparalleled drama that captivates fans worldwide.
