Jorge Filho lands amazing spin kick knockout of Claudio Cezario

Sunday, November 29, 2015

Although the UFC is the world’s premiere organization, there are awesome fights happening all over the globe on any given weekend. The UFC also is the organization that everyone one strives to get to one day.

Jungle Fight, pioneered by the legendary Wallid Ismail, is one of Brazil’s top promotions and began promoting events in 2003. The promotion has held eighty three events to date featuring some of Brazil’s top talent. This past weekend the promotion held their latest event at the Sede do Botafogo de Futebol e Regatas in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In one of the featured bouts, 5-1 welterweight Jorge Filho squared off with 8-4 Claudio Cezario and landed this awesome flush spin kick to win the fight.

Spinning knockout kicks are one sign that some aspects of traditional martial arts like taekwondo are resurgent in MMA. They are also one of the most impressive ways to finish your opponent inside a cage. In some amazing highlights you’ll have to Google to find, Edson Barboza most famously landed maybe the best spinning knockout kick ever delivered and the legendary Vitor Belfort is responsible for more than one beautiful finish by spinning kick.
