Junior Dos Santos executes brutal ‘Spartan kick’

This is Sparta!

Junior Dos Santos put on a masterful, five round clinic to batter Ben Rothwell in a lopsided unanimous decision at the UFC’s first trip to Croatia.

But it was the Brazilian’s exclamation mark on the second round which caused the biggest stir as the heavyweight delivered a vicious overhand right before sending Rothwell flying across the Octagon with a Spartan style push kick.

Rothwell was saved by the bell and managed to hang tough for 25 minutes on a card which featured four knockouts and two submission finishes.

“It’s always good to go to the body especially when you’re fighting a huge guy like him. Like I was saying, you can’t collide with those guys. I used my footwork and throw some hard jabs and punches. It worked well. Thank God, I won.”
