Former UFC lightweight Ross Pearson had a forgettable return to mixed martial arts as he was knocked out by a stunning rolling thunder by Davy Gallon on Saturday night.
Pearson was competing in MMA for the first time at Probellum 1 in London since venturing into the boxing world in May. He notably knocked out Salar King via TKO on that occasion.
However, he couldn’t return to the win column inside the cage as he suffered a third-round knockout to Gallon who landed a crazy rolling thunder on Pearson’s head.
Pearson had a slightly delayed reaction before hitting the canvas out cold.

It now marks three defeats in a row in MMA for Pearson who has also lost seven of his last eight in total.
It’s not every day that you see a rolling thunder knockout, especially as it’s one of the hardest moves to pull off. Unfortunately for Pearson, he was the recipient of one of the craziest knockouts of the year.
What did you think of the knockout?
