Anthony Pettis Talks 'Showtime' Kick Knockdown At WEC 53

0

One of the best fights this year took place last night as World Cagefighting Championships closed out it's final show before a merge with the UFC and in the final round of the main event title fight between Ben Henderson and Anthony Pettis, Pettis pulled off one of the craziest kicks in an MMA fight and talked about it following his title win:

“The biggest thing going through my mind was 'go for it.' I kept thinking like, 'man, I gotta do something to land.' He was checking all my low kicks and I couldn't get off. He kept stopping me, one or two punches, so I'm like, 'I gotta do something out the box and see what happens.' Luckily for me, it landed. We practice it in camp … to do it in a title fight in the last round is something different.”
