Is Capoeira Effective in an MMA Bout? This Fighter Would Soon Find Out

This fighter shown on the video (bald and wearing black shorts) would find out how effective Capoeira is in a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) bout. Capoeira–a Brazilian martial art heavy on rotating kicks with quick gymnastic movements developed by slaves–seems an unlikely technique in MMA because it looks more like dancing.

Would dancing make it in a contest of brute strength and tough combat fighting techniques?

Well, the “dancing” Capoeira player moved in and applied his “dancing” as best as he could. You have to watch what happened in the end!
