Knockout mondays! The video I decided to post was from the UFC bout a few weeks ago with Edson Barboza landing his opponent with a beautiful spinning hook kick!! The amazing thing about this was not only the technique, but the fact he landed the kick while both fighters are in a ready position. Spinning hook kick are generally better as a counter. Check out his opponent’s arm at the end #priceless!!
A while back I posted a video of Bas Rutten’s roundhouse to the liver. painful stuff. Hope these guys don’t drink!
Earlier in the week, I have posted news based on the fight amongst Lyoto Machida vs. Randy Couture. Despite the element of surprise from Machida, this was going to be a great fight based on the caliber of these
athletes fighters.The “crane kick” would have caught most people by surprise. Let alone its challenge to close distance from a fighter such Machida (if you are not trying to get swept). Machida’s unorthodox fighting style makes him a tough opponent to beat. This is a great advantage of those martial artist against western boxing, wrestling, etc. However, its all about practitioner.
