Video: Marius Zaromskis Does Front Flip Kick to Knock Down Bruno Carvalho

Lithuanian welterweight Marius Zaromskis has won 16 of his 23 professional fights, 12 coming by knock out. He’s fought in Cage Rage, Dream, and Strikeforce. On Saturday, he faced Bruno Carvalho in Rumble of the Kings in Sweden.

Zaromskis is no stranger to damaging his opponents during fights in unconventional ways. He’ll even employ a front flip kick (aka koppo kick) to get a knock down if he has to. Check out this awesomeness:

It might not have been as potent as Lyoto Machida’s knockout kick of Randy Couture, but it certainly was more fancy. This is easily one of our favorite knockout kicks.

Kazushi Sakuraba Has Ear Torn Off in Loss to Marius Zaromskis

In wrestling and MMA, it’s quite common to see fighters with cauliflower ear. Their hearing devices get ripped to shreds and disfigured from all the years of pushing, pulling, and strain placed on the vital appendage. Heck, we’ve even seen someone’s potato dumpling get torn off during a fight, Evander Holyfield-style (check the pics!). The same thing happened at K-1 Dynamite!! on New Year’s Eve in Japan. Kazushi Sakuraba’s ear was torn off during his loss to Marius Zaromskis, resulting in the fight being stopped. Check out this gnarly pic courtesy of God Bless the Ring via Bloody Elbow:

The ear opened up about a minute into the fight, and then left hands from the southpaw Zaromskis hurt it more. The ear completely tore off when Sakuraba shot in on Zaromskis’ leg, looking for a takedown. The referee immediately put Sakuraba back into his corner and the fight was waved off. That was truly gross, and here’s another look from MMA Fighting.
