WATCH:  Shooting Star Guard Pass into Side Control

Watch as Dzhihad Yunusov does something you will likely not find duplicated inside of a mixed martial arts cage.

Fast forward to around 4:30 into the below video to see Yunusov perform a shooting star guard pass by flipping over his opponent, Konstantin Veselkin, and landing in a side control position.

The fight took place at Akhmat Fight Show 23: Grand Prix Akhmat 2016, June 11, 2016 from Sports Hall Coliseum in Grozny, Russia.  Yunusov went on to win the fight via Ezekiel Choke (another rare accomplishment).
