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

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!

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

I would twist my own neck and die if I use capoeira.
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 
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.

MMA is sport it'd not a martial art

Don't f with capoeira
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.

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.
Meninao Ville
how can you call it capoeira if there's no ginga?
Brice Beimer
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.

This has to be one of the most boring fights I've ever watched. The 'takedowns' were awful, looked like the fighters wanted to make love, and the complete opposite of a war.
The_-Light Gamer007
this is real fighting, not like wwe smackdown.
Alex Watson
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.

regardless of the skill of the competitors, I'm impressed by the displays of sportsmanship.
Ivan alonso
is always so envious criticizing and arranging arguments to discredit a fighting style just because it is South American, not even made ​​a critique of may thai fighter who fought so bad that neither seemed to be struggling as effective as muay thai style. Alias ​​the two seemed to be fighting each unknown fighting styles. That envy has criticized the South Americans ..... just to convince themselves that they are not inferior!
Jack Krauser
capoeria ? , LOL. that guy not know anything about capoeira.
artist quality
can you say 'boooring'
David Ng
Crazy???? No....

oh well, once you get tired, no more capoeira and dancing around.

12:38 He was about to do some crazy capoeira celebration, but got interrupted. Shame.
10:39 his punches looked soooo slow

i think capoera isnt too effective on mma...try to using SILAT technique

They both look too scared to throw an actual punch.

ATTENTION ALL CAPOEIRA FANS!!! The fighting style itself looks fancy and all, but if you want to be a good fighter I don't recommend anyone choosing this style. Most of the lessons include just "playing" with your partner by the sound of music. In time you will learn to become good at kicks, but really it's just a time waste. Sorry to disappoint you, but I was considering going to capoeira too some time ago.
wasted 13 minutes of my life...
brenda mattos
:) capoeira e cultura muito lindo de se ver
Connie Teixeira
The people say that they do that to call attention, these people are so ignorant. The Brazilian Capoiera use the fisic, The Neewton Laws, it's so obvious the reason why the turn and kick!!!! Stop being so ignorant!!!!
Real ish
what silly pacing. like jousting. dont blink lol. u might miss two bafoons exchange the same attack every few seconds
5 losses 2 wins...
funny how the crowd had to yell at them to use their hands. I think the fighting style relies to much on the legs.
Jonathan D. Truelove
Clearly, the only guy who knew ANYTHING about fighting was the capoeira guy. Style, stance and class can be achie ed through martial arts. I'm ptty sure if Bruce Lee was alive, he'd have a lot to say about what goes on today in the martial world...

good technic n strong kick

la verdad que pense que iba a perder el de capoira 😶

Приятно посмотреть. А главное - какое взаимное уважение!
Zakaria Touaibia
worst capoeira fighter ever , wasn't he drunk !?

This was kind of meh. I feel like the Capoeira Kick Knockout shows what Capoeira can do. This guy was standing really straight and not moving his feet or anything. In my opinion you keep a song stuck in your head if you're using this style and follow the rhythm while watching your opponent. Like i said this guy stood up straight and didnt dance or anything.

Reiner Braun
What the hell?? Ok capoeira is supposed to be disguised as a dance right? As if you would dance in the UFC or any MMA fight, i didn't see him disguise any of his kicks with dances, sure he's athletic buuut his hands are always down, he doesn't cover up and he looks like he would get knocked out easily. 
vlad vladm
the fight was really bad... Not very efficient, not very quick, no knockout... I saw better more in other videos.
Robert Andarson
Sky Lord Panglot
And where is the capoeira? Nobody is even using the basic capoeira movements.
This is why I hate MMA. less than 2 minutes into the video, 2 fighters of kicking-based styles are wrestling on the ground like 5 year-olds.
Why does it look like Marcus is holding back. His punches took a while to hit.
Dries Bogaerts
Capoeira guy can do some awesome kicks , but he can't throw a punch what so ever
Karthyk Rajan
Great opponent
I can see why lack of a good ground game leaves you incomplete. Both gave up their backs multiple times. The punches were a bit sloppy and uncommitted at times. Missed arm bars and rear chokes. I do understand why he was cautious of his style capoeira. It is unorthodox and unpredictable. You definitely don't want to get caught with all that momentum.
Joice Melo
Este foi bom , bateu bem , a capoeira , e boa na verdadeira luta , ele deu muito mole ainda , mas boa brasileiro , 😘
Emerson Da Cruz
Brasil. Capoeira. ❤
uses capoeira -> failed hard -> uses chokes (BJJ/Wrestle) -> wins -> Pretty much sums up the whole effectiveness of capoeira in mma
MMA kämpfer hat ein guten reflex, aber Fußtritte gegen capoeira kämpfer?? ist wohl ein witz. Statt dessen sollte er lieber seine arme benutzen. Außerdem hat er ein schlechtes gleichgewichthaltung.
Mario Pinesa
Heeeey I don't see capoeira in this fight

Funny how a capoeira dojo opened up near by. Me while fighting: Yah....BRAZIL......PONYTAIL......BRAZIL! *gets a KO*
1:54 Isn't that what you call a parry?
Pedro Cardoso
No final da luta, ambos cansados, parecia uma luta de bêbados... Mas agilidade do capoeirista foi sua vantagem.
Eagle's Might, G 37
They look like to dorks fighting on the street with moves they learned from a movie. All I could do was laugh.
Bane Cook
 Dude was picking homeboy apart for the better half of the fight and it wasn't even Capoeira that won him the fight, it was ground and pound and submissions.
Fernando Gomes
N sei se é pq eu sou retardado mais eu ri muito nessa parte 0:59
Ashe Fitzgerald
I want to see someone combine the flexibility and dexterity that practicing capoeira gives you to the principles of Muay Thai. Just think of all of the insane possibilities that would open up! Anyone who could do that and accurately assess their opponent in the ring would definitely have an advantage in the long run.

Ugh no boxing when they got close so they basically stayed in a range were they both could use those fancy kicks hope these guys dont meet a great striker lol I'm just saying.

o capoeira e difícil de apanhar e igual raio bonito que aparece a beira mar 😹🎇🎇🎇🎉🎉 capoeira porra

Lots of fancy rolling and kicking that accomplishes nothing, until both guys are exhausted and it degenerates into a glorified bar brawl. Yeah this is MMA all right.

i love his kicks. they are no joke but he needs a better close range game
i would rather not say that  this was capoeira, he only used 1 kick from capoeira and, the sort of movement wasnt there. so i would rather say this is more like kick boxing. thats my opinion!
Diego Graziano
upload better videos please,,,,,...this fight's a waste of time..nothing happened in this fight..both of them gasp out doing nothing...
It seems everywhere, that the people who know the least about capoeira have the most negative things to say about it. This guy used just enough capoeira to keep his opponent at bay and guessing. The other guy came too close thinking to avoid the well known kicks and instead got choked out. Job done.
Owen Algate
I am Owen I am interested in learning Capoeira in Brisbane , I have epilepsy but am interested in getting a lift to a Capoeira Club If anyone would be interested in picking me up from the North Side I could pay them for a lift to the Capoeira Club I am a beginner and wanting to learn more , My age is 39 looking at Starting Capoeira. ,,
Filosofando Filosofando
Capoeira nao é "Crazy"é a nossa arte,nossa luta,nossa defesa e ataque,a parte forte de nossa cultura!!
I don't really know anything about MMA, but I feel like every time the guy doing the fancy stuff did such he left huge openings that the other guy never capitalized on.
Richard Bushell
From what i see is two fighters that have the one thing it takes to come out on top in the ring or the street and life in general "respect". If these two could team up and find a right young fighter to train,... that is who my money will be on.

Robert Styes
That's not Capoeira. It's not good anything. Both of them telegraph their kicks. And the "capoeira" guy throws his arms way out leaving himself wide. Look up capoeira championship videos. While mostly noncontact it shows what the art looks like.
Ruan Weiers Britzke
Man if you were hited by anyone of those kicks it'c knockout, capoeirs is powerfull kicks not only a dance, but is better to have capoeira and otter style to be a really good fighter.
Both of them just a joke fight,, too slow, is not realistic can be use for the street self defence ,,
Smooth Play
Left + Down, Circle! Left + Down, Circle! Left + Down, Circle! Spamming kick! :D
Govind S
Aurelio should have finished it off at 2nd round. Ken's back was exposed clearly. Aurelio should have gone for a rear naked choke at that time. But good to capoeira in action.
Am i the only who ecxpect that someone will k'o by capoera kick right on face?
assis assuncao
Parabéns pelo guerreiro que vc é e por representar nossa capoeira sempre com muita raça e coragem.....
Fran Pérez
la peor pelea que he visto de mma vaya mierda xD
this guy is the worst Capoeira fighter . low technique and not focus , he won by chance and a disgrace to Capoeira
For an amateur recording from the stands, this is fantastic camerawork.
