Watch Mark Hunt devastate Jerome Le Banner

Case in point, recently GLORY posted the video below, which features Mark Hunt viciously knocking out storied kickboxer, Jerome Le Banner. The jaw-dropping KO took place in the quarterfinals of K-1’s World Grand Prix in 2001.

Hunt went on to win the entire grand prix with follow-up wins over Stefan Leko and Francisco Filho.

Le Banner avenges the loss

Although Le Banner came up short in their 2001 bout, big time, the heavyweight went on to score decision wins over Hunt twice in 2002.

Hunt started competing in MMA bouts in 2004, under the PRIDE banner, and he competed in his last kickboxing match in 2008. The feared slugger went 30-13 during his kickboxing career.

Le Banner, meanwhile, went 86-22-2 during his memorable career.
