    What are some fights where you saw a technique used effectively that you either did not know about or did not think could be used effectively?

    I thought kicks to the legs of an opponent on their back was useless until I watched Sakuraba use them effectively in these fights:

    Didn't know turning your back and running was considered competent defense (Gus)

    Jones trapping the arm and trying to hyperextend the elbow was awesome.
    Thought it would catch on

    Machida's a gold mine. I love his stance:

    The poop technique still hasn't been mastered yet. Only 3 people have tried.

    Ronda showed the importance of head movement in her last fight.

    Fedor slightly bending his fists inward to reduce risk of wrist injury and transitioning from a looping right hook into a clinch position.

    Conor McGregor's uppercut techniques on Holloway/Diaz I thought were awesome.

    Just as an aside, pray for Takayama.

    Yoshihiro Takayama, one half of the most memorable brawl in mixed martial arts history, has been paralysed from the neck down after suffering a spinal chord injury.

    The injury came in May, when Takayama was professional wrestling and a ‘DDT’ move delivered by his opponent went awry. Multiple reports, including Japanese site Kakutolog, have confirmed the news.

    Gustafsson's combo. These are not really uppercuts, it´s a technique called Bolo Punch. That was new information for me.

    Silva´s reverse elbow. At the time it's not like many people were using, specially getting instant KOs like this.

    And these are not necessarily new techniques but I had never seen them applied in such spectacular way before

    Not even the Omaplata, it's when he holds you from off his back and elbows you, making you wish you never got into his guard.

    Brandon Vera vs. Jardine was the first time I remember seeing the now infamous push kick to the knee.
    Jackson-Wink must've noticed how well it worked against one of their fighters, because it wasn't too long until that entire camp started using it against everyone else.
