    Soccer kick to body should be utilised more often IMO

    I thought he still trains at Anderson's MTC? I remember Anderson mentioning a few years back that the UFC should sign him.

    because it's rare to be standing over someone who is posting or in turtle these days. You either endup with people on the ground because of a takedown, or a knockdown where they've flopped to guard or a similar position a lot of the time.

    From what I've seen they're usually blocked by the arms. They still hurt a bunch but more times they're blocked. In this case it didn't happen and dude got blasted.

    Great question. There are many legal and potentially damaging techniques that are under utilized. Some of them come with risk such as not seeking a position of control on a downed opponent. But if your opponent is down and not in a position to seek a TD, great technique to at least soften up the body, with potential to stop a fight. It may be that fighters fear them out of the potential to draw a foul if the opponent moves to much?

    Me too. Such an effective strike without a lot of risk associated. I'm always begging for fighters to throw it when in a good position. Rarely do they, though.
