Capoeira Roda de Rua

Fino Cambur

On May 1st (labor day in Venezuela) my Capoeira group organized a Roda de Rua — basically a street demonstration of all the fighting, dancing and music that comes with Capoeira. We set up on a pedestrian street called Sabana Grande, near Plaza Venezuela. Now, I’ve always enjoyed watching street performances, from magicians to musicians, but this was the first time I was part of one; it was pretty fino cambur.

Since I’ve been making videos recently with the Cameo app, I decided to do one for the Roda de Rua as well. Enjoy!

UFC 187: Andrei Arlovski vs. Travis Browne video highlights

MMA Junkie

LAS VEGAS – [autotag]Andrei Arlovski[/autotag] continued his incredible – and improbable – resurgence at UFC 187 with a massive Round 1 upset TKO of highly ranked heavyweight [autotag]Travis Browne[/autotag].

Arlovski (24-10 MMA, 13-4 UFC) hurt Browne (17-3-1 MMA, 8-3-1 UFC) early and often with heavy punches, repeatedly putting “Hapa” on rubber legs. Browne’s chin held up as well as anyone could reasonably ask as he managed to survive barrage after barrage, even managing to uncork a counter while still hurt that dropped Arlovski.

Arlovski survived the ensuing flurry from Browne, hurt him once again and continued to fire away until the referee was forced to jump in and award Arlovski with the TKO win.

Check out the video highlights of the fight, which aired on pay-per-view from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC 187: Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort video highlights

MMA Junkie

LAS VEGAS – [autotag]Chris Weidman[/autotag] had to survive a scare against [autotag]Vitor Belfort[/autotag] to successfully defend his UFC middleweight championship, but once he took over the fight, he took it over for good.

Belfort (24-11 MMA, 13-7 UFC) connected with some very big shots early in Round 1, at one point landing a big flurry of uppercuts to the chin of the champion in the clinch. Weidman (13-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) got through the bad spot and scored a takedown moments later.

Once the fight hit the floor, it was over. Weidman attacked from half guard, moved to mount and fired away with shots until the referee was forced to call a halt to the action as Belfort turned to his side and covered up.

Check out the video highlights of the fight, which aired on pay-per-view from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC 187: Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson video highlights

MMA Junkie

LAS VEGAS – [autotag]Anthony Johnson[/autotag] gave it everything he had in his UFC 187 main event against [autotag]Daniel Cormier[/autotag] but his power shots were not enough to overcome the chin and grinding game of Cormier.

Johnson (20-4 MMA, 10-5 UFC) came out firing heavy shots and connected repeatedly. Cormier (16-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) was forced to fight through an absolute onslaught that seemed as though it might not stop. Cormier tried to make Johnson carry his weight in a body lock against the cage and that seemed small at the time but set things up for later in the fight.

By the end of Round 2, Cormier had managed to utilize his wrestling and Johnson seemed badly fatigued in his corner. A tired Johnson was there for the taking in Round 3 as Cormier again put the fight on the floor but this time managed to take the back and sink in a rear-naked choke…
