Presence of mind is a quality that not many fighters possess in their repertoire, yet despite that, it is something that has often turned the tides in the course of MMA fights.

From cartwheel knockouts to sacred capoeira rituals, there is no "definitive" key to landing successful attacks, as improvisation is the name of the game.

Jones tapped out almost instantly and Jonno proceeded to do a Conor McGregor reminiscent celebration. Even Chris Jericho mentioned this feat on his Twitter handle.
