Fans love head kicks, it gets them excited and is a spectacular way to finish a fight. Ognjen Topic went head kick happy in his fight against Paowarit Sasiprapa at Lion Fight 9 in March of 2013.

Adding to the excitement of the knockdowns was Paowarit's ability to continue to get up. His toughness could never be questioned as he continued to get up after each knockdown and even after the final knockdown he was attempting to get up, but the referee had seen enough. Get your Monday started off right by watching this great knockout.
