Sometimes, you’ve got to do more than just get your hands up.

Heder Araujo learned this the hard way on Saturday at a Shooto Brasil event in Rio de Janeiro as his defenses failed to stop a thunderous head kick from opponent Marcus Bruno a.k.a. Bruno “Ogro.”

In the clip above, Araujo can be seen slowly getting his hands up to deflect an incoming strike, but the shin of Ogro sneaks around and blasts him right in the side of the head. If there was any question to how cleanly Ogro’s kick landed, all one has to do is watch the sharp trajectory at which Araujo hit the mat.

Ogro was making his pro debut, while the 35-year-old Araujo sees his record fall to 3-5-1.
