DWCS 54 winner Bruna Brasil says high-kick knockout is her specialty

·1 min read

LAS VEGAS – Bruna Brasil spoke to the media after punching her ticket to the UFC at Dana White’s Contender Series 54.

Brasil (8-2-1) scored a spectacular head-kick knockout of Marnic Mann at DWCS 54 on Tuesday to earn a UFC contract. Dana White called it the greatest women’s knockout in Contender Series history, and Brasil said it’s a finish she’s drilled plenty of times before.

“I’m the special one,” Brasil told reporters, including MMA Junkie at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. “I love kicking. The high kick is a forte of mine. We trained that a lot, obviously, because the height difference – it was there. But I always try to attempt the high kicks.”
