20 Seconds: Capoeira Makes Its Way Into MMA


Marcus “Lelo” Aurelio knocks out Keegan “The Marshall” Marshall at NAC #24 in North Vancouver, BC on April 4th 2009. Aurelio uses a Meia Lua to KO his opponent in 20 seconds. Aurelio is part of Axé Capoeira’s Academy in Vancouver, Canada. Video after the jump.


  1. dats one of the sickest knockouts ive seen

  2. Amazing … I also like his little show he puts on after the fight.

  3. that was cool

  4. Cobra Clutch says:

    I'm not convinced until I see copoeira go against a real opponent in MMA.

    But I'm convinced that ring girl with the two-piece and SHORT skirt was HOT!

  5. i agree all that jumping around would not work most of the time but it was a cool ko.

  6. not that impressive…….

    ufc 100 Marcus Aurelio vs Jean-Claude Van Damme?

  7. Oswald Gobblecock says:

    I do want to see more styles come to MMA.

  8. that ko was bad ass.

  9. dane drebin says:

    that was very impressive anyone who says it wasnt is a tard. that style might not work all the time but for that fight it couldnt have worked better.

  10. Alan Goes is an mma fighter that uses capoeira when he fights. He has fought in the IFL organization and his style doesnt do very good against actual good mma fighters. This guy that gets knocked out doesnt look very good. Backing up from kicks with ur chin up and hands down is never a good defense lol. This was an impressive ko but as far as capo taking storm and working its way into the UFC ranks and high skill level fights like that I doubt it will happen.

  11. dane drebin says:

    if he gets good skills in mui thai, wrestling and jui jitsui he could be interesting… it never hurts to have a martial art in ur arsenal that not many people know. just ask machida with his karate and sumo wrestling.
