South African cagefighter Asiashu Tshitamba produced a brilliant knockout at EFC 81 against Billy Oosthuizen to earn his fourth straight win in the competition.
The 26-year-old caused a stir with his celebration, however, when he simulated shooting his already downed opponent in the head.
EFC’s Vice President for Talent Graeme Cartmell told Business Insider that Tshitamba is free to celebrate how he wants, and that the gesture might not have been meant how it’s been taken by EFC fans on Twitter.

26-year-old South African cagefighter Asiashu Tshitamba produced a stunning knockout at EFC 81, but caused controversy with his celebration when he pretended to shoot his already knocked out opponent in the head.
Tshitamba faced Billy “The Kid” Oosthuizen in Pretoria on Saturday night, but made light work of his fellow South African, knocking him out just 10 seconds into the second round with a perfectly executed front kick to the chin.
The bantamweight duel ended in contentious fashion, however, as Tshitamba then stood over his already flattended opponent and simulated two gunshots to the head.
