Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto still gets asked about the time he knocked out an opponent in four seconds with a flying knee to the head.

He managed that feat shortly after the opening bell for his fight against Kazuyuki Miyata, a former Olympic wrestler who on that night was the unfortunate soul being kneed in the face, during Hero’s 5 in 2006 at Yoyogi Gymnasium. It was the fastest knockout ever in a major MMA circuit.
