Watch Anthony Pettis show off capoeira skills

Maggie Hendricks

Anthony Pettis has shown off his acrobatic ability in fights. The former WEC lightweight champion is still remembered for his kick off the cage that clinched his win over Benson Henderson. Now, imagine what he can do with capoeira training? Pettis has been training in Brazil, and as shown in the video above, has picked up some skills from the Brazilian martial art that mixes acrobatics, dancing and fighting.

He'll fight Jose Aldo in August for the UFC featherweight belt. Do you think we'll see him pull out any of these tricks at UFC 163? Speak up on Facebook or on Twitter.

Thanks, MMA Fighting.
