What is the Bottle Cap Challenge?
Using a roundhouse kick to knock the top off of a bottle, Taekwondo fighter and instructor Farabi Daveltchin created the latest viral trend on June 25.
In his Instagram post, Davletchin challenged action movie stars Jason Statham and Jackie Chan, as well as Irish UFC star Conor McGregor, to reply with their own videos.
