A Max Muay Thai event in Thailand over the weekend delivered a rare yet spectacular highlight to the combat sports community when rising 25-year-old Chinese star Gou Dakui faced off against Super x Sitsontidech of Thailand.
In the second round, Dakui scored a TKO victory but perhaps he should have been given credit for two.
After landing multiple heavy right hands that had Super x Sitsontidech on the ropes and out on his feet, the referee attempted to come running in to save the day.
Unfortunately for the ref, Dakui was already in the process of uncorking a big left head kick and the referee found his way right in its path as it connected right on the button. It created a moment of madness in the ring.
