This was an awesome fight and I love how respectful these guys are

oCapoerista tento finaliza a luta com1golpe de Capoeira+não deu,por isso ele ficava parado boa parte da luta,pra tentar usar martelo cruzado,meia-lua-de compasso pra com isso acabar com a luta mostrando a eficiência da Capoeira+se ele fosse usar a verdadeira Capoeira seria desclassificado,so quem conhece a arte vai entender,varias posições que ele no chão podia dar uma benção de chão,martelo,chapa,queixada de angola na cara do cara+não vale na regra dessas lutas,se ele partisse pra cima usando a real Capoeira ai é outra coisa

6:07 that kick was beautiful
Flavie Cazamea
Good fight, good respect, fun fight, and seems like two guys who generally love what they're doing, you dont get a lot of this in the big televised stuff.

Capoeira is a beautiful martial art. Don't get wrong in a real fight you don't have to do jinga. In a real fight you will never show your oponente what can you do or what you know. The good thing for capoeiristas is there body is ready to move any direction and attack any position!

Carrément ouf le combat de capoeira en MMA,  le mec assure ! bravo pour ces beaux gestes techniques et martiaux dans le ring, la capoeira à sa place partout ! jogaki capoeira paris
Capoiera in its authentic form was super effective in the 19th century , Portuguese slave hunters were more afraid of Capoiera fighters than Dutch invaders and it allowed Slaves to fight people armed with bayonets , there were special laws against Capoiera cause it was considered very dangerous for the colonists The modern form is probably more "dancy" and spectacular than the original , i don't know but it seems they waste a lot of energy moving back and forth all the time  and going for high kicks so often , just my opinion though 
He's making good use of the Armada but getting kicked coming out of it. He should negativa and role right after it to avoid the counter-can't kick a downed opponent in the face. Looks like he understands the game of modern mma but is incorporating Capoeira into it.
For those of you who don't know why the ginga isn't used in this match much or at all...the ginga wasn't a part of Capoeira until after 1835. That's more than 2 centuries AFTER Capoeira was known to exist [ the quilombos--the free cities and small states where African warriors fled to escape slavery, resurrect their cultural practices, and train in Capoeira--were known to exist no later than 1604, which is amazing because Brazil was founded around 1560 or so ], so...unlike the untruths that Cardio Capoeiristas spread...real, genuine, self defense Capoeira DID NOT feature the ginga at its inception. Los Zuavos...the Capoeira heroes of the Paraguayan War who are the reason that we sing the song PARANUE today...also never did the ginga on the battlefield or anywhere else. The ginga...when trained functionally to be used in a fight...does not look like the Cardio Capoeira roda ginga, but it's an incredible weapon that can be used standing crouching on the ground, on your back, grappling and more. It is a fact that Capoeira's fluid movements and animal techniques has heavily impacted bjj to this very day [ remember, Capoeiristas were grappling before brazilian jiujitsu ever existed ]. If you want to see what real self defense Capoeira that can also be used in the streets, the gym and the roda looks like? Please come to my Channel and look at my videos.

There are two kinds of martial arts. The disciplines that are martial, and the ones that are art. Capoeira is an art form. Disciplines such as Muay Thai get to the point a bit quicker and have a higher percentage of landed strikes, but capoeira is mostly deception and counter attacks to catch your enemy off guard.
Andi Kaizar
good technic n strong kick
Dylan Sabulsky
regardless of the skill of the competitors, I'm impressed by the displays of sportsmanship.
10:39 his punches looked soooo slow
5 losses 2 wins...
1:28 old man was enjoying the beautiful view of asses. Front row seat for you. XD
Steve V
They both look too scared to throw an actual punch.
Meninao Ville
how can you call it capoeira if there's no ginga?

Zakaria Touaibia
worst capoeira fighter ever , wasn't he drunk !?
he go all hercules and head first 11:16 lol
john chisholm
crap cardio
uses capoeira -> failed hard -> uses chokes (BJJ/Wrestle) -> wins -> Pretty much sums up the whole effectiveness of capoeira in mma
Martin Arancibia
la verdad que pense que iba a perder el de capoira 😶
Fer Gomide
Vocês lutão muito bem 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

oh well, once you get tired, no more capoeira and dancing around.
Gigs Yoo
As many style slowly joining circle, i think its time to enlarge the cage. Small cage is very good for wrestling, but give no room for other style to develop further. Or I suggest no cage at all, let the cage open, so the wrestler or any other style dont strike aimlessly with force as they will fall and penalized.. Aha, its like Dragon Ball champion ring.. ehe
paulo balls
you've read about capoeira? slaves used capoeira to defend themselves against armed foremen. then why is not effective in a real fight? stupid
Well capoeira is useless in real fight..
Marcel Saviolo
chuj ci w dupe nygusie!
11:15 bitch slap !!!!
Titan Slayer
Good sportsmanship
Impresionante!!, muy buen estilo el capoeira.
zum zum zum zum zum zum capoeira mata um!!!
as far as everybody criticizing Kent Tran in his performance u have to understand that what may look obvious and telegraph from the spectators perspective isnt gonna look even remotel identical to the guy that has to be in the fight. He has no idea where his strikes are gonna come from how their gonna come. the strikes come all at once in different fluid motions
well u cant base a style effectiveness on one indivdual fighter
well any style is whatever u make, its only as energy demaning as u make it. Its not used in MMA much because most promoters dont wanna waste their time on it. And others dont properly trained on how to use it in combat
Simon Templar
That is why it is not used much in MMA. Capoeira is a flamboyant style, but IMO is too demanding on energy. Efficient, low risk moves and combos are the safe bet. Leave big round-houses for show matches and so on.
Сергій Бондаренко
капоэйра выглядит комически и ничего зрелищного. говно

Capoeira not effective? See same fighter(Marcus aurelio): /watch?v=rcTyUwYR0AQ (CAPOEIRISTA FAZENDO BONITO EM ESTRÉIA NO) or Official Crazy 20 second Capoeira MMA Knock Out in HD

the light skin guy like it behind
Great fight, but damn his cornerman that interrupted the ginga after the 3rd round.
Good fight, those of you hating on the capoeira dude for falling on his ass need to understand that when a "normal fighter" lands a punch or misses a punch, they have their 2 feet on the ground to brace them to not fall forward or to not fall back. A capoeira fighter has nothing to brace them, the safety of their attack depends on their ability to land a blow that breaks the combo of kicks or knocks the enemy back long enough for the cap. fighter to compose himself.

hahaha,CAPOEIRA <3 have a guy speaking what he need to do! i heard:PONTEIRA,PARALELA,MEIA-LUA ... All are name of moviments of capoeira
Ruan Fialho
caralho esses chutes dão medo, se fosse eu no lugar desse cara enfrentando um atleta com um nível tão aprimorado na capoeira como esse, tudo que eu não iria fazer era ficar distante dele. Encurtaria o máximo, se um chute desse entra meu amigo, é hospital com certeza.
Gustavo Guilherme Gamer
vcs tem inveja do estilo masacrador dos lutadores de capoeira por isso ficao falando merda quando perden a capoeira e uma das artes de luta mais completa do mundo aprede que sabe sua obsidade morbita pode se curada ne nao americano
nice fight, respekt to both fighters.
Mr. Jaywalker
Uh dude, it's both.
Mr. Jaywalker
You're a bit of an idiot if you're trying to say that a martial art's effectiveness is determined by a single man :|

capoeira e dança? filhas da puta haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa chupa muai thay.
Kelly Fox
Capoeira dude got lucky at the last second. This proves capoeira is not effective cuz he didn't win cuz of that, he won cuz he pinned the guy & started throwing strange windmill punches. The other guy dominated the fight. Period! Capoeira dude made a fool of himself w/ all those flips & twirls. Guess he razzle dazzled his way to victory, lol...but does winning even matter if u embarrassed yourself doing it?
Jae Wu
Alot of martial arts are "dances", look at pencak silat. It's by dancing and moving elegantly that you can learn the techniques better.
Shaquille Ghotane
theres a reason he lost more than he won.
desmond madill
damn them nutshots!!!
Meta Meech
Excuses...excuses. Maybe capoeira is just as effective in fighting as it is in being a cool dance. Why is there always an excuse when kung-fu, karate, TKD, and now capoeira wins in MMA, or defeats a style that is used in MMA? As if BJJ, MT, and boxing are the only styles that work. I think these vids proves ppl shud add capoeira to that list.
This match was set. The non-capoeira-guy doesn't even try.
JopieH2 it's a fighting style from Brazil
Capoeira isn't a fighting style.. it is a dance, plus it is a good fight!!
Jack Krauser
capoeria ? , LOL. that guy not know anything about capoeira.
Capoeira is based on hiding attacks within dancing-like movements, especially flips and spinning. Muay Thai is about using all 8 of your weapons, which are your hands, elbows, knees, and feet, even though the style is most famous for its clinch and kicking techniques. truckin318 didn't say anything that was wrong. Did you just feel like randomly cursing some guy out for no particular reason?
good game.. it Later became a battLe of cardio
You don't know anything about that you retarded furry obsessed loser.
Apple Woods
Yeah, they cancel each other out pretty well since Capoeira is mainly based on flips and movement while Muay Thai is more about direct strikes using each of one's limbs.
Zaehel Lucca
11:59 Moment is SO FUNNY!!!
Hoje não tem mestres que ensinam a verdadeira capoeira, a capoeira dos escrevos era brutal, é uma arte marcial que mais ensina movimentação com o corpo. Essas outras lutas ensinam o lutador a ficar muito parado, a capoeira é boa na movimentação e com os pés.
tiago silva
O marcos é foda!
gatta say this is got to be one of the best mma fights ive seen. unlike others where the spend the hole fight grouping each other.
Claudionor Ramos
na verdade historicamente a capoeira criou regras para evitar danos maiores mas na primitiva era muito mais violenta. um abraço.

There is only one thing I don't like about Capoiera, it's the fact that everything has a long windup, there's very little that's meant to be a stunning or opening strike, it's a lot of bio-mechanics and power, but if you can react in time, it's predictable. To give an example, effectively every kick in Capoiera is one you'd use if your opponent is distracted or dazed, as they're all finishing moves, but it doesn't give many ways to do that in the first place. Fair enough, it doesn't look good if you're constantly avoiding your opponent, but you're not gonna get close to a capoiera fighter without taking damage, so you should create space and let them wear themselves out. Once that happens they're slower and easier to counter as you can get in before they've finished the windup or get them on the overturn. If they're tired and you have the reaction time, you've won.
