One of the best things about mixed martial arts is the fact that you never know how or when a fight will end. Sometimes you get stuck with a boring fight that goes the distance, but you’re always a split second away from a “HOLY SHIT!” moment. On Friday night in Brazil, Cairo Rocha gave us one of those “HOLY SHIT!” moments when he landed this sick kick to the head of Francisco Neves’ head, knocking him out cold. I want to make a poster out of this gif and put it where my television is. I would never leave my living room again.
According to someone on the Sherdog forums, the kick was a capoeira move called “meia-lua de compasso.”
