I was cageside when Anthony Pettis landed the famous “Showtime kick” on Benson Henderosn at WEC 53 in December 2010. It was the greatest thing I’d seen up to that point, and I recall everyone in press row uttering a collective “holy sh*t” when he landed the kick. We were all just as floored as Bendo was in that moment.
The video below, coincidentally, had the same effect in terms of leaving the crowd in shock and disbelief. Although it was a bold attempt, the result wasn’t quite the same as Pettis’ efforts. In fact, it is quite possibly the worst attempt at the MMA we’ve ever seen. Yes, we referred to is as “the MMA” because it makes no sense, just like the technique in the video below. Totally going to start using that phrase from now on.
Anyway, to the YouTubeage!
