Analysis of Jomhod’s Left Kick and Cross Knockout
Yes, he basically knocked him out on one leg.
This seems to prove that Jomhod possesses inhuman punching power. That is perfectly possible. However, even a man without inhuman power could produce the same beautiful knockout.
The world of fight analyses is a cookbook full of recipes. There are tons of techniques in these analyses we can follow and create knockouts with. However, some of these analyses break down techniques that are difficult to reproduce simply because the fighter being analyzed may be utilizing a physical gift we lack (Jon Jone’s wingspan, for instance).
Fortunately, the technique utilized in this breakdown is perfectly re-creatable. The knockout was able to happen even while Jomhod was on one leg because Kengkart ran into Jomhod’s punch. A collision like this magnifies the power. Imagine a parked car being hit by a moving car versus two moving cars crashing into each other head on.
So how did Jomhod lure his opponent in? That’s the fun part, and it is analyzed brilliantly in the below video from Evolve MMA: a beautiful demonstration of ringcraft.

What will make your opponent more frightened than you popping into his space like a ghost, then sucking the life out of him like a vampire?
