MMA Fighter Appears to Hadouken Opponent Before Pummeling Him

The welterweight bout between Shane Campbell and Derek Boyle seemed like just an ordinary fight.

That is, until the third round, when Boyle dropped to his knee following a body kick from Campbell.

What happened next was both strange and amazing: Campbell took a step back and appeared to hadouken.

For those of you not familiar with the "hadouken" term, it was made popular in the late 1980s and early '90s through the video game Street Fighter.


No fire appeared from Campbell's hands, but the tactic seemed to work.

He went on to completely thrash his opponent for the win.
