Mixed martial arts (MMA) encompasses an array of spectacular performances. From flying submissions to one-punch knockouts, MMA fighters have been known to pull every trick out of the bag to win in devastating fashion.
Well, it now seems as if the combat sports world has witnessed one of the more rare finishes in MMA. Russian Amir Elzhurkaev recently stopped his opponent, Dmitrity Tomaev, at Absolute Championship Berkut 34 via a super rare two-touch spinning back kick to the liver. The action was captured via Twitter:

We’ve seen some pretty crazy spinning techniques in the past, specifically Edson Barboza’s wheel kick knockout of Terry Etim at UFC 142, but this one stands out for its own reasons.
What makes things even more astonishing is the fact that Elzhurkaev was making his professional debut. Unfortunately, he’ll be expected to turn in performances like this every time he steps inside the cage.
