Shawn Jordan’s UFC 182 backflip

After his stellar performance at UFC 182 heavyweight fighter Shawn Jordan completed a backflip much to the surprise of not just everyone watching at home on Fox Sports 1 but also to the fans in the arena.

Jordan, who weighed in a day earlier at 261 pounds defeated Jared Cannonier via knockout at 2:57 in Round 1.  Below is a video of how he celebrated.  The move itself should have probably earned a Performance of the Night bonus.
