This is absolutely insane. During the 154-pound final bout of the MMA Toyota Marathon (yeah, I’m not entirely sure about that branding, either) in Phitsanulok, Thailand, Rafael “Ataman” Fiziev managed to duck one hell of a kick from his opponent. Had that blow connected, Ataman might’ve found himself short one head. Instead, Ataman pulled some straight-up Neo-from-the-Matrix maneuver.

According to BroBible: “Fiziev showed that he is otherworldly with this quick and flexible defensive maneuver when his opponent Sorgraw Petchyindee attempted to kick off his head. Somehow, Ataman bent his back at nearly a 45-degree angle to avoid the kick entirely.”
