A UFC Fighter Delivered One Of The Most Brutal Knockouts Ever With A Wheel Kick To The Face

Last night’s UFC 142 in Brazil gave us one of the most talked-about knockouts in a long time.

Edson Barboza KO’d Terry Etim with a perfectly timed wheel kick to the head. Barboza’s heel caught Etim’s jaw, leaving Etim limp.

For UFC fans, it was a beautiful strike.

For UFC detractors, it was a brutal and cringe-worthy example of the barbarism of the sport.

Here’s the video (via Big Lead Sports):


UFC hates you and doesn’t want you to be able to watch their stuff on the internet, so we don’t have video anymore.
