Video: Rare, double low blow crumples both fighters at Dana White’s ‘Contender Series’

Four deviled eggs for the price of two.

Featherweight fighters Jonah Bilharinho and Canaan Kawaihae were trying to knee their way out of the clinch during the second-round of their 145-pound clash on Dana White’s “Contender Series” last Tuesday night in Las Vegas, with both combatants taking knee-to-nuts for a rare double low blow.

Watch the slow-motion replay in the video above.

Bilharinho would later win the fight by way of technical knockout after uncorking a spinning wheel kick in the third and final frame; however, White was not impressed with the Brazilian’s body of work and opted against signing “Shiva” to a UFC contract.

“The kid’s stock went up tonight,” White said after the fight (via MMA Junkie). “Maybe one of these other organizations pick him up, which we talked about before, they’re not very bright so they probably won’t. He’ll pick up a couple of fights in LFA or one of those type of shows, and we’ll take a look at him again. He definitely – landing that kick tonight put him in a good spot. He’s a free agent right now, he can do what he wants, and we’ll look at him again.”
