Coner Hignett lived up to his nickname of “The Hand Grenade” at Cage Warriors 113 when he blew up for a brilliant win over Darren O’Gorman.
Hignett (8-5) pulled off one of the best comebacks and knockouts of the year thus far when he stopped O’Gorman (6-5) in the third round of their flyweight matchup, which took place at BEC Arena in Manchester, England, and streamed on ESPN+.
A series of precise and powerful right hands were the culprit behind Hignett’s comeback, which you can watch below (via Twitter):
Hignett’s comeback to win truly came from the brink of defeat. Aside from the finish, O’Gorman was in control of the action for almost the entirety of the contest, including a deep triangle choke that was in place for several minutes.
Ultimately, Hignett endured the adversity before finding a home for his beautiful fight-ending series of punches.
