The spinning and/or delayed moves (like the question mark (brazilian) kick, or the one in the video) are the next step after the basics. Being able to to know when to throw them, after you've set up your opponent with the basics, is a great way to hit with them, because they aren't expecting it.
That particular kick in the video, i've landed numerous times in practice, except to the body. I set it up with inside leg kicks, which i use to unbalance someone. Once someone has been unbalanced a couple of times, they tend to stand really heavy, so they don't get unbalanced again. while they are sitting down, i fake the first kick, which hides the next kick and also gives me momentum for the spin.
This is why its called "Mixed Martial Arts", and not Wrestling-Muai Thai- Boxing- Brazilian Juijitsu. That guy that says fighters should focus on the fundamentals, is ignoring the fact that in a fight, you need to be able to surprise your opponent, and hit them with something they don't know how to defend.
