VIDEO: There are creative strikers and then there’s cartwheel-kicking Alan Jouban

Could have been knockout of the year

Darragh Murphy

Alan Jouban landed 63 strikes on Matt Dwyer last night.

But the stats should award him 113 total strikes because surely cartwheel kicks count for fifty.

Brahma threw caution to the wind with just seconds remaining in the second round of his welterweight clash with Matt Dwyer and decided to combine the sports of gymnastics and mixed martial arts with a beautiful cartwheel kick.

It landed flush on the jaw of the Canadian but Dwyer managed to survive and hold on. The survival was to no avail though as Jouban went on to easily take the unanimous decision.

We want more of this.
