Anthony Pettis capoeira

Short clip, but pretty bad ass! Didn't think he was that fluid in the art of capoeira! Where's Blanka...

Ok but looks a little hesitant and stiff like he is trying too hard. What was impressive was the fat dude, much more fluid.

Fixed the video.

Pettis looks a bit wooden compared to the capoeira master in white.

Koo... I have to say Capoeira is one of the most stylish martial arts out there. It's a combination of dancing, b-boying and martial arts.

Well seeing as Pettis is one of the Top fighters in the world and commonly uses it when his beats ass its not so surprising that he's got some skill.

The fat man is so smooth because 1. Hes probably been practicing far longer than Petter (looks older) and 2. Pettis practices more than just Capoeira. Fat man probably is a dedicated Capoeira practioner

Pettis is hesitant because he's clearly worried he's going to kick fatboy in the head... whereas fatboy has no such fears, seeing as he has the shortest legs in the galaxy.
