Throughout MMA history fight fans have seen numerous impressive knockouts that come from spinning kicks. From Vitor Belfort’s wheel kick KO against Luke Rockhold, to Uriah Hall’s wheel kick KO win over Adam Cella on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’. Of course, the most iconic wheel kick KO in the UFC is arguably Edson Barboza’s wheel kick KO win over Terry Etim many years ago.
With that being said, this past week Brando Mamana picked up an extremely impressive and extremely clean KO win under the One Pride MMA banner in Indonesia when he faked a kick to the body before then landing a spinning kick on his opponent just moments into the fight. Fourteen seconds into the fight to be exact.
Check out the absolutely devastating kick in the video above from the scrap, which took place on One Pride MMA’s third card ever.
