MMA fighter comically fails with head kick at LFA 7, then gets brutally KO’d by one
A rule of thumb in MMA is that if you’re going to try a flashy move, just don’t look silly doing it.
Let this capoeira kick attempt by Clovis Hancock during the first round of his LFA 7 fight on Friday be an example of how not to attempt a capoeira kick.

As the kids would say, “that’s not how you MMA.”
Hancock’s opponent, Nikolay Veretennikov, might’ve been able to pounce for the finish right there. But instead Veretennikov (4-2) likely was so stunned by how terrible that looked that he didn’t know how to react, except to raise his hand in the air like, “Nah.”
As if that wasn’t bad enough for Hancock (2-2), in a twist of irony, it was a devastating, straight-to-the-point, nothing-fancy-about-it head kick by Veretennikov that ended the fight in the third round.
