Flashy Knockout of the Weekend: Capoeira is Alive and Well

 (Video: YouTube/Trailerstraduzidos)

It may not have been one of the weekend’s fastest knockouts, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t the fanciest. Cairo Rocha took on Fracisco Neves Friday night on the Brazilian Fighting Championship’s “Desafio dos Imortais” card. We don’t know what transpired in the two minutes, twenty five seconds leading up to this strike, but if it’s anything like that kick we’d like to see it.

Capoeira, it’s the new missionary.

Hell ya. Maybe someday we'll see that from Barboza? Who else has some crazy Brazilian kicks?

There was a bitchin Capoeira knockout in my state's MMA a while ago. It's hard to detect what shot is coming at you when a fighter starts weaving and ducking like that.
