UFC star Anthony Pettis shows off some capoeira skills

Anthony Pettis is in Brazil for a little while, and this video shows him doing some capoeira in front of a crowd.

26-year-old Anthony Pettis (16-2) is well-known as one of the best athletes in MMA. After all, this is the guy that pulled off the "Showtime Kick" to help hand current UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson his last defeat back in 2010. It seems that he has some more tricks up his sleeve, as you can see in the video above where Showtime shows off some capoeira skills while he's down in Brazil.

Pettis, a top lightweight fighter, will drop to featherweight for his next bout, a 145-pound title shot against champion Jose Aldo at UFC 163 on August 3rd.
