Luis Sapo Santos just pulled off the most beautifully violent KO at XFC International 3

Bjork has a song called 'Violently Happy' that has been endlessly remixed throughout what seems like decades -- in fact, I think it may actually be two decades by now, which means you're really old. So it seems somewhat bizarre that no MMA highlight reel maker has chose that song to base one of their eloquent creations on. Perhaps if the song was called 'Happily Violent' then we would see it utilized far more in the MMA world. Luis Sapo Santos is violently happy and happily violent at the same time after what he just pulled off at XFC International 3. On top of all that, the dude pulled off probably the walkout KO of the year when he front kicked his opponent's soul into the roof and casually walked off like he just got a text message at a bar. Props to @GrabakaHitman for the .gif.

Well well well...2 days after discussing front-kick KO's here, we get one as beautiful as the one Silva threw. Minus the level of competition and the belt. That shit was clean as a whistle!

Very true, and this kick definitely didn't make him as much money as the one that landed on Vitor's chin did, but still impressive.

You could put an insomniac to sleep with that.

Yeah, it's weird. The site has never been like that before.

It only takes one person to be innovative for the whole sport to be copying that shit.

Clean and violent indeed
+1 # PERPATRAITOR 2014-03-30 12:29
the slow motion of the gif barely helps you see the speed of it. Perfect form with insane speed. He's thrown this kick to perfection. That was a real long distance snipe to the chin!
+1 # kylefog93 2014-03-30 13:10
That was nasty, couldn't have been any more perfect.
-2 # guppy 2014-03-31 09:51
that was a hell of a kick...
