Check out Anthony Pettis’ unbelievable Aú Batido from WEC 50

So it’s not quite an Aú Batido, but it’s the closest thing we’ll see in real-time on cable television. Granted, a few hours ago I had no idea what an Aú Batido was until Bloody Elbow broke it down in an article filled with enough .gifs to make slower computers laugh in processor disbelief. In order for Anthony Pettis to have fully pulled off the capoeira kick, his left hand needed to support his weight as he twisted his hips and ultimately his leg in the direction of Shane Roller at WEC 50. Nevertheless, it’s a kick that all of us will undoubtedly try on our roommate sometime this weekend under the influence of stupidity. [Source]
