Edson Barboza Lands Movie-Like Spinning Back Kick KO At UFC 142

Every once in awhile one of our beloved fighters will land something that looks like it came straight out of a Van Damme movie. Edson Barboza did just that tonight when he knocked out Terry Etim with a picture-perfect spinning back kick. It doesn’t get any prettier than that.

I’m not sure which is cooler… Barboza’s kick or Jose Aldo bolting out of the Octagon to celebrate his first round knockout victory over Chad Mendes with his fellow countryman in the crowd.
