MMA Fighter Uses WWE Legend Shawn Michaels' Finisher 'Sweet Chin Music' To Win Fight

An MMA fight was brought to a swift end when prolific fighter Kevin "Mr Nice Guy" Wirth handed out some 'Sweet Chin Music' to his opponent.

The signature move, which involves kicking your opponent straight in the chin, was perfectly executed at Legacy Fighting Alliance 33 in Dallas.

The Flyweight fighter cued up the band and connected flush on Isaiah Gutierrez's chin, leaving him on the canvas before the referee waved the bout with 1:30 left of round three.

As many fans of wrestling will know, the classic finisher was the signature move of WWE legend Shawn Michaels; a four-time world champion.

The move is basically a glorified version 'super kick' performed with the Heartbreak Kid's unique theatrics.

It was a huge fan favourite in the attitute era days and for many, the 'Jim Ross version' will bring back so many memories.

Just check it out below!

In recent years, MMA and WWE have become more and more similar as fighters have started to use their favourite wrestling moves in the octagon.

For example, Jonno Mears made his opponent Aaron Jones tap out by using the 'Walls of Jericho' at an event in Bolton in 2018.

During the Full Contact Contender 19 event, Mears channeled his inner Y2J by putting his opponent Aaron Jones away with the deadly submission.

Michel Pereira was also inspired by WWE's finest Chris Jericho during his highly anticipated bout at Road FC 52.

The 25-year-old, known for his unorthodox style of fighting, came up against opponent Dae Sung Kim earlier this year, who probably didn't expect a pro-wrestling move to be thrown into the mixer.

In a moment of utter madness, Pereira decided to throw himself off the cage in Seoul, South Korea and well, we all went absolutely mad for it.

As good old Jim Ross would say: "BAH GAWD HE'S BROKEN IN HALF!
