One of the most egregious late hits in combat sports history was Paul Daley punching Josh Koscheck after the bells rang at UFC 113. It didn’t do much damage, but it led to an everlasting feud between Dana White and Daley, who has been banned from ever competing in the UFC. There have been plenty of other cheap shots, like the famous Heath Herring Kiss Punch.

But this knockout from Glory 42 is one of the most confusing knockouts of all time. Some are calling it a cheap shot, some are saying it’s a late hit, but all we know for sure is that Harut Grigorian was knocked unconscious and had his jaw broken by Murthel Groenhart, who was then instantly attacked by Grigorian’s corner.
