If you haven't fallen in love with kickboxing after seeing liver-exploding kicks and one-handed combo knockouts, I don't know what you're waiting on. Atomic butt drops? Ok, that's crazy. They say you can't stop crazy, which means you can't stop Joe Schilling. He's like an honorary kickboxing Diaz brother. He dominated his fight with Alexandru Negrea by using relentless pressure, a typewriter jab, and thunderous head kicks. While that's really rad — especially the gnarly combination below — the real fun happened after his Bellator Kickboxing 6 victory.

No wonder Schilling rolls deep with both Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, Nick and Nate Diaz. Not only are they all badasses, but ol' Cerrone also loves to enjoy a frosty pop and the Diaz's have an omnipresent smoke cloud. Joe Schilling's after party combined all of those elements. He even squeezed a sponsor plug in there. This is the epitome of the American dream: Getting paid to do what you love, enjoying your victory by pouring an ice cold cruiser into your kickboxing trophy, and topping it off by dancing with Mary Jane.
