Someone actually landed a cartwheel kick KO last night

Someone actually landed a cartwheel kick KO last night

The year was 2008 and the place was Brisbane Australia. Brian Ebersole was taking part in a fight under X-rules, which combined multiple combat sports into a single, Voltron-like fight where every fan in the seats would be satisfied on some level. It was in this fight Ebersole landed one of the greatest knockout blows in in guys fighting each other history with: The cartwheel kick.

Since that day, guys like Anthony Pettis and Dan Hardy have all attempted or teased the concept of a cartwheel kick KO inside the cage but Anas Siraj Mounir actually pulled it off against Michael Oliver at Made4theCage 11 last night in the UK. Check it out and props to poir420 for the +100 news tip.
