Call it karma, a swift kick of justice or whatever else you’d like. For mixed martial artist Joe Harding, this was as embarrassing of a moment as you can have in the sport.
Harding was taking on fellow featherweight Johan Segas at British Challenge MMA 18 in Colchester, England on Saturday when he got so comfortable that he began dancing and taunting his opponent.
That is when Segas took advantage of Harding’s careless defense and delivered a brutal headkick that immediately knocked Harding unconscious.
It was one of the most vicious knockouts of the year so far.

Yeah, that’s going to leave a mark. And a bruised ego.
