I meant that, I think Silva just kind of threw it out there and wasn't expecting to KO him with it. He was more or less just kind of jabbing with his foot
Fluky in the sense that it severly rocked Vitor.
Silva has excellent technique and deceptive strength. He throws loose; his knockout punches are done in a similar manner.
That kick is the source of many KOs in kickboxing. But, the biggest factor is that Vitor didn't see it coming.
