    I was curious about that too, so I looked into it. What you did is get the "gif" URL and put it in to the image console here. However, there's some funkyness at play:

    The .gif extension on that Reddit page is a red herring. It's not a link to a static media file (like how a CDN stores all those meme images), instead it's a dynamically rendered page that can serve multiple media. The headers for this "gif" instead tell the browser that it's an mp4 file. And when Reddit embeds the video, they do it with the HTML5 `video` tag.

    In contrast, the image console in our editor can only create an HTML `img` tag. So, basically, we inadvertently told the browser to try and read video bitcode but render it as an image, which it doesn't know how to do.

    What's weird is that it still works on my browser, but not on my phone's browser.

    its just how the web server recognizes the extension. some places have extensions with .jpg play video. the extension is irrelevant, it's all in what the web server does with it. Places use .gif most likely because they figure your browser, and plugins will be expecting video returning.

    Pause it, rewind to the beginning and kind of go frame by frame. it was a knee, but at normal speed it does look like a superman punch. I agreed until I slowed it down and did this

    Spot on. I see it now. He did throw that right hand to follow it up though.

    definitely. looks like he was throwing a practiced knee/punch combo.

    anyway, I can definitely see thinking it was an Superman punch

    Very weird. Saw this a few days ago, and saw a very clear knee that ended with the KO. But now I see only a superman punch. Here's different angles, where apparently it was a superman punch:


    Regardless, Kailan Hill fucked that dude up with an impressive/creative combo. If he keeps winning, especially like that, he'll be in the UFC in no time.

    definitely a knee. if you watch the second view, again, pause it, drag the bar. he was putting his arms forward to brace but his whole strike was a knee. then he KOd him with the punch afterward

    and it was a wicked combo for sure.
