VIDEO: Marius Zaromskis Rolling Axe Kick KO

Marius Zaromskis' stateside Strikeforce experiment may have not gone as planned, but the head-kick knockouts that earned him some notoriety are still being handed out. Except maybe a little differently this time.

Zaromskis faced Brazilian Bruno Carvalho at ROTK - Rumble of the Kings 6 yesterday at the Hovet Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
