WATCH - Cocky MMA fighter begins dancing in the Octagon and gets knocked out cold
Taunting your opponent in Mixed Martial Arts is always a risky move.
On Saturday night during a British Challenge MMA event in Colchester, amateur fighter Joe Harding learned that lesson the hard way.
Harding was up against French fighter Johan Segas in a bout for the interim featherweight title.
Having connected with a headkick and following that up with a left jab, Harding was full of confidence and bullishly began dancing inside the octagon.
However this taunting left the hometown fighter wide open allowing his opponent Segas to connect with a brutal headkick of his own knocking Harding out in the process.
After extensive medical checks Harding was eventually able to leave the octagon of his own accord.
