At Bellator’s 61 event, Brian Rogers punched his ticket for the candidacy of KO of the Year. Rogers knocked out Vitor Vianna with a flying knee that sent Vianna to the mat in a cold, frozen heap of a mess. Before Rogers’ flying knee he already wobbled Vianna with punches. Seizing the opportunity, Rogers ran towards Vianna and delivered a well-placed knee to the head. Before the match Vianna was a favorite to win the fight with his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu experience and advantage in grappling. Unfortunately for him Rogers kept the fight standing up.
Rogers’ KO of Vianna is one of the favorites for KO of the Year but it still doesn’t top Edson Barboza’s spinning wheel kick KO of Terry Etim at UFC 142.
