MMA in the Wild: Argentinian Street Fight Ends in Immediate Head Kick Knockout


(Thanks to CagePotato reader Juan Pablo B. for the tip!)

Everybody underestimates head movement — but in a one-on-one street-fight, it’s probably the greatest advantage you can have. This little altercation went down recently in Cordoba, Argentina, featuring a guy in a red jacket who slips ‘n’ rips like a pro, and a dude in a white long-sleeve who clearly doesn’t have the same level of kickboxing experience.

The whole thing lasts about three seconds, and ends with red-jacket guy landing a beautiful right high kick that sends the other guy tumbling face first like Steve Judson. Luckily, the fight ended there and nobody was gang-stomped or bashed with a 2×4. Kudos for being civilized, Argentina.

Today in Head Kicks: Ryan Ford Goes ‘Silva vs. Belfort’ at WSOF Canada, and a Women’s Muay Thai Bout Ends With a Lawn Chair KO [VIDEOS]

Major props are in order for CP reader Lewis Scott for passing along this video of British women’s Muay Thai world champion Iman Barlow’s latest fight, which went down in Melton Mowbray, UK last weekend.

Those of you not familiar with Barlow should know that despite being just 20 years of age, she is a multi-title holder who has compiled over 130 fights since making her professional debut when she was only twelve years old. Riding a three fight, three decision win streak into last Saturday’s match with Maritzarda Hersisia, Barlow came out aggressive and looking for the kill, which she would find a minute into the second round via a beautiful right high kick.

Hersisia crumpled to the mat in classic lawn chair fashion, and Barlow walked off with her latest championship — the 2014 Golden Belt World Title. Check out the vicious KO above, then follow us below for the big highlight from last weekend’s WSOF Canada event.

UFC on Versus 6 Adds Barry vs Struve, Kicks Predicted


In case you wondered what the disparity looks like.    PicProps: MsTracyLee/CombatLifestyle

Well, it took our boy Pat Barry about two years to get a fight that he’s long thought would be fun: he’s set to face off with Stefan Struve in October at UFC Live on Versus 6. UFCLoV 6 (that acronym is still roughly half as ludicrous as DREAM’s last show) is expected to go down in Washington, DC; so far it has not been confirmed that all fights on the card will take place in five-sided cage dubbed The Pentagon (Trademark Pending), which will be manufactured under contract by KBR for a taxpayer cost of six million dollars.

MMAJunkie reported that verbal agreements had been made for the bout, and we assume smear campaigns and sex scandals are being developed as we speak.

Skyscraper comes into the bout off of a pretty gnarly KO loss to Travis Browne at UFC 130 in May.  For the record, Struve is 6’11″ with 83 inches of reach.

Our boy HD comes off of a KO loss as well, in a bout that you may remember with Cheick Kongo last month.  Barry stands at 5’11″ in his tighty whiteys with 74 (and 1/2) inches of reach.

This is happening, people.  There’s going to be raw viciousness and genuine dislike in the air, plus we’re going to send trained fighters who like to kick people really hard into a cage and let ‘em fight.  Should be awesome.  Did we mention this shindig is supposed to go down in DC?  Man, Congress is full of scum — won’t this hurt the sanctioning effort?

The 10 Best Signature Moves in MMA

#10: Shinya Aoki‘s Flying Guard Pull/Japanese Backpack (Aoki vs.Moore.) When you fight Aoki you know he wants to get things to the ground, and he knows that you know it.  Takedowns and sweeps can be hard to come by against an opponent looking to defend them and almost nothing else, so Aoki has had to [...]
