To me, that was just MMA evolution in front of our eyes last night. 10 years ago moves like that weren't being taught in gyms, and the more developed the sport is, these are the types of results we are getting.
Wrestlers can use the cage to stack opponents (if they never had they cage they wouldn't be able to stack guys up and come down with shots), so agile strikers should be able to use the cage to perform strikes they couldn't otherwise
Damn fine point!
"kicks like this are jaw dropping but imagine someone trying this and in the air the opponent steps back and lays him out with a overhead right." -ckauffman28
Actually Henderson WAS stepping when he got caught, it would seem that ducking or stepping into the kick would be better. Of course had he stepped in, there was a chance he could have caught a modified spinning knee instead....It's all about timing, and Pettis had perfect timing. Fancy Kicks do work, if you know how to use footwork, movement, and can time your opponent. So many factors go into it, many fighters just throw technique hoping something will land, when this starts to change fights 10 years from now may resemble kung fu flicks......

"I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee
