Watch MMA star Manel Kape copy Man Utd star Cristiano Ronaldo's 'siu' celebration after brutal UFC Vegas 44 win

MANEL KAPE took a leaf out of Cristiano Ronaldo’s book as he copied the Man Utd star’s signature ‘siu’ celebration after a brutal KO at UFC Vegas 44.

MMA ace Kape was fighting Zhalgas Zhumagulov at last night’s event in Sin City.

And he took no prisoners as he secured a first round TKO following an electric display of boxing.

As the ref halted the fight, Kape stopped pummelling his stricken opponent and turned around to bask in the crowd’s glory.

He then took a quick step before launching himself in the air.

And after spinning back round to face Zhumagulov, Kape boomed out ‘Siu!’ as he thrust his arms behind his back.

The celebration was clearly a nod to Portugal legend and compatriot Ronaldo, who does the same move every time he scores for club and country.

The Man Utd star almost missed his side’s 1-0 win against Crystal Palace today after hurting his knee while performing the celebration against Arsenal.


And Ronaldo revealed in August that he began saying ‘siu’ after scoring for Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly against Chelsea.

Ronnie explained: “I was in the US and we played against Chelsea and I don't know where it came from. I just scored and I went, 'siu!’ But it was natural, to be honest.

"After that, I started doing it and I feel like the fans, when they see me they're like 'siu’ and I was like, 'wow, people remember Cristiano because of the siu,’ so I continued like that."

However, the veteran was unable to do his trademark jump and shout against Palace on Sunday.

United won their first game in charge under Ralf Rangnick 1-0.

And their match winner came from an unlikely source in the shape of midfielder Fred.

But with 12 goals already for the Red Devils this term, Ronaldo is sure to be unleashing ‘Siu’ plenty more times.
