Watch insane capoeira head kick knockout video from Julio Cesar Neves at WOCS 28

Skip to 2:15 if you don't care about words.

Knockout of the year?

I remember watching "Only the Strong" back in 1993, that capoeira martial arts flick starring the guy from Iron Chef, and thinking "Ha, that shit would never work in a real fight."

I guess I was wrong (as usual).

It helps when your flat-footed opponent stands in one spot, as featherweight prospect Julio Cesar Neves found out in the first round of his 145-pound clash against Dener Chuleta at the Watch Out Combat Show (WOCS) last Friday night (Aug. 10, 2013) from Jose Francisco Perine Municipal Sports Center in Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

The highlight-reel stoppage (via MMA Fighting) improved "Morceguinho" to 26-0 with 17 finishes by way of knockout or technical knockout. The Brazilian also has seven submission wins, which means he's a pretty bad (expletive). But how would he fare inside the hallowed walls of the Octagon?

At this pace, we may find out sooner, rather than later.
