Miami Hustle, Episode 2 is Beasting!!! And Alexis Vila is the star of the show!!!

'That man from Cuba' is a bad man!!!

I'd like to lead into this entry by stating, if you don't know who Alexis Vila is, shame on you!!!


Alexis Vila is an accomplished amateur wrestler-turned mixed martial artist. Vila won a Bronze Medal for Cuba in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Olympics and is also a two-time World Champion, among a long list of other wrestling accomplishments.

Vila took up mixed martial arts in 2007, and has lead an undefeated nine-fight career since. He us currently ranked #2 as a flyweight by FightMatrix.

Alexis Vila embodies the 'Cuban-style.' If you've been following this blog (and I really hope you have been), you might recall my interview with Jorge Masvidal last week in which he talked about the this stylistic phenomenon. The Cuban style is all about speed, finesse, and pure athleticism. It's cocky and flashy, but also rhythmic and fluid. Anyway, if you have any further wonderings about the Cuban style, Alexis Vila puts it on display in the closing minutes of the episode when he brutalizes Lewis McKenzie en route to a second round TKO win.

The online docu-series Miami Hustle is already off to a successful start and this second episode of kills it! Massive props to the man behind the camera, Isaac Kensington, a.k.a. 'Genghis Con' for his usual artistic awesomeness!
