Ya, I'm not sure. I thought that this pic was of the last low kick thrown, but I am not sure of that. However it does appear that this kick is in the right place to "shock" the sciatic and Sherman does appear to lose muscle control. However this is just pure speculation on my part. Exciting nun the less.
