Knockouts are a lot like home runs and touchdownsthey are what fans come out to see when the go to a live sporting event. While MMA is filled with of the best knockouts in combat sports, if you want to see beautifully brutal knockouts, then Glory is where you should focus your attention.

Glory came into existence when the world’s premier kickboxing organization K-1 was in a dire financial situation. A group of inventors was formed to buy the organization, but when K-1 was sold to another party, the group decided to form their own organization.

They went out and purchased United Glory, Golden Glory and It’s Showtime to form the best kickboxing organization in the world.

The striking in MMA has come a long way over the years, but it still pales in comparison next to the level of technical striking seen in the Glory ring. The kicks, the punches, the kneeseverything is just more crisp and sound in the ring. The biggest reason the striking is so much better in Glory is due in large that the fighters don’t have to worry about being taken down.

Takedowns change the nature of the fight game drastically and while that added dimension is what makes MMA great, it prevents fighters from using many exciting techniques.

If you are one of the many MMA fans out there who loves the standup game, but hates the ground game, then Glory is for you as Glory is home to some of the most dynamic strikers in the world.
