No one thought Xtreme Couture fighter and submission specialist Vinny Magalhaes could knock out an  opponent with a head kick.

Not even Magalhaes.

But that’s exactly how Magalhaes (9-5) defended his M-1 Global  light-heavyweight belt Friday night against Russian contender Mikhail Zayats  (14-6) in the main event on the M-1 Challenge XXVII mixed martial arts card  at Grand Canyon University Arena.

Magalhaes, a world champion grappler and jiu-jitsu competitor, followed a  straight right with a swiveling right-head kick that Zayats never saw. Zayats,  dazed, dropped to his knees, and Magalhaes pounded him with punches to the head  until the fight was called 1:13 into the third round of the scheduled five  rounds.

“I have been practicing it (the head kick) all the time; I just have not had  the confidence doing it,” said Magalhaes, a Brazilian who trains in Las Vegas.  “The first two rounds were not going my way, so I felt like I had to try  something that was not going to be expected.”

  2. Honestly, I don’t feel like watching mixed martial art but this video makes me WOW with their movements. He’s too fast and focused and he even danced in the ring. Great job!
