Default Ex-NFL WR Morton knocked out in MMA debut

Morton wasn't available to comment on the fight or the suspension, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Morton was fighting on a K-1/Elite XC Dynamite!! USA card at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. He was put in a neck splint and taken to California Hospital in Los Angeles for observation but was able to flash a victory sign to the crowd before leaving the ring on a stretcher.

"How many people who would do what he did, stepping into the NFL of MMA and putting it all on the line," Morton's trainer, Mike Guymon told the Times.

Morton only trained for two months for his MMA debut, but Guymon said Morton was ready for the fight.

"When you want to jump into something, you jump into something," Guymon told the Times. "I've been fighting for 10 years and I still don't feel like I'm prepared."

Ackah, however, doesn't think Morton's ready for the big time yet.

"He needs more experience," he told the Times.
I would say and time your knocked out 38 seconds into a fight and you've only trained for two months your unprepared. What the heck was he thinking?

Guess he didnt have that Kung-Fu grip.

Best part was the ref; he knew it was over.

There's getting KO'd and then there's that.
