This Spinning Back Kick Leads to a Decisive Knockout (Video)


There are a TON of candidates for knockout of the year from the ranks of MMA, but this one seems to be the most suave. Claudio Cesario took on Jorge Filho in Rio on Saturday night, and managed to end the fight after just two minutes with a spinning back kick

The kick was impressive, but the aftermath makes it a true highlight. Filho took the kick, remained still for a moment, then collapsed as though his entire skeletal system had been removed from his body.

Take a look:

NOCAUTE, ISSO É @junglefcoficial 83 NA @bandsports E @band

I bet Cesario was already in his corner drinking from his water bottle by the time the ref called the fight. That’s how you walk away from a knockout!
