Moraes KOs Nam with head kick at World Series of Fighting 2


If there was any doubt about the ability and status of the once unheralded Marlon Moraes, chances are those doubts are gone.

wow look at nam's legs as the kick comes. moraes faked low so good that nam brought his entire leg back and was basically one legged when he ate the head kick. ouch.

Nam turned his back and went belly down. Moraes was throwing and caught him. It wasn't intentional and he didn't throw continuous shots that landed to the back if the head. Good finish and stoppage.

Agreed.Moraes and Gaethje are both fantastic young prospects and would fit in nicely in the UFC. WSOF has done a very good job scoping out promising young fighters.

That kick reminded me of Cro Cop versus Dos Caras

Good catch, I think I was so caught up in that beautiful kick that I overlooked that shot to the back of the head. Brutal.
