Rustam Khabilov vs. Jorge Masvidal full fight video highlights from UFC Fight Night 31

In case you missed the "Fight of the Night" from the "Fight for the Troops" event.

If you missed the Rustam Khabilov vs. Jorge Masvidal lightweight tilt on the main card of tonight's (Wed., Nov. 6, 2013) UFC Fight Night 31: "Fight for the Troops 3" event at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, than you missed out on the best fight of the evening, at least according to the bonus awards handed out by the promotion. Indeed, Khabilov earned a decision victory after three rounds of back-and-forth action that included one of the sweetest spinning back kicks to the neck you'll ever see. He calls it a "Tiger kick" and claimed he was practicing it with his coaches in hopes of landing it in this bout. See it to believe it above. The win gives the Russian six in a row, including three inside the Octagon in as many tries. Perhaps it's time to catapult him up the line of contenders and give him a big fight on an even bigger stage. How's that sound to you, Maniacs?
