Meet Julio Cesar Neves, an undefeated featherweight prospect from Brazil who continues racking up highlight-reel knockouts.
"Morceguinho," who's tallied a 26-0 pro record in just 22 months, scored his 17th career knockout on Saturday at Watch Out Combat Show 28 in Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. And it was one of the 19-year-old fighter's flashiest yet.
Facing Dener dos Santos (9-5 at the time), Neves tapped into his capoeira roots and unloaded a crushing head kick to get the first-round win.
Neves, who's now 13-0 in 2013 (with 10 knockouts and three submissions), has largely been facing overmatched competition, many of whom had losing records (or no pro wins at all). However, his gaudy record and obvious finishing ability should start to get him noticed by the bigger fight promotions.
Looks a real fantastic prospect. His record is padded with unknown names, but 26-0 at 19 is pretty insane, he's ridiculously active. Nice KO too, just a bit weird that the video appears to be mirrored. What you reckon? Gonna be a star?
