Spinning Heel Kick Results in Brutal KO (Video)

heel kick

One of the most exciting things about MMA and boxing is that one landed punch or kick can undo everything that’s happened up until that point. In fact, it’s the rule rather than the exception.

Check out this clip in which Gary Laws (the big guy) had been dominating for two rounds, only to have his world just totally rocked by Fred Cordeiro, who won the fight with a spinning heel kick in the third round. 

Here’s the clip:

#GaryBoomBoomLaws had done really well in the first two rounds before ending up on the wrong end of this devastating third round KO by @fredjokercordeiro #spinningheelkick #KO at #DUEL6 #Newcastle on Saturday. However, this #spinningkick was no fluke by #Cordeiro who has done it before a couple of times and is very good #fighter indeed #kickboxing #thaiboxing #K1 #capoeira #spinninghighkick #spinkick #spinningwheelkick #duelkickboxing #duelfightsports #k1anoop #teamplus #kickboxingplanet #mmaplus #goodtechnique @kickboxingplanet @mmaplus @duelfight @rd_goat

It’s hard to tell here if Laws ever lost consciousness, but he certainly never resumed fighting. The fight was called and the name “Fred Cordeiro” echoed through the halls of sports media for the next 12 hours or so.
