An extremely rare double-knockout occurred during the Shamrock FC 285 event held at the Ameristar Casino in Kansas City on Saturday.
In the much anticipated match up between Axel Cazares and Alan Vasquez, both fighters planted their feet in a good old fashion slobber knocker, and threw right hands at the same time. Both fighters connected flush. And both fell fully concussed to the crowds bewilderment.

Even though both fighters were knocked unconscious, Vasquez who was ultimately deemed the winner because he was the first to stumble to his feet and clear the cobwebs. I’m sure that victory doesn’t sit well, but hey at least its a win on his record.
Double knockouts are very uncommon in mixed martial arts. The most famous instance in recent years being a double-KO that occurred in 2007, when Gray Maynard and Robert Emerson battled during The Ultimate Fighter 5 Finale.
