I was wondering a while ago why we dont really see that many push kicks in MMA. After watching the Fedor/Arlovski fight again I think I have hit upon why. In the last seconds of the fight, arlovski hits fedor with one (and being a grappler of high caliber, if you can hit fedor with one safely, it can happen to anyone) what i noticed after that though, was after getting hit, fedor wasnt effected much, he just bounced off the ropes and knocked arlovski out. So the conclusion I think is that it is just not a move usefull in MMA. Good in the real life, when you need to make room (i have seen a few door men use push kicks quite well) but in MMA, you arent planning to run away. You wanna hurt the other guy, and push kicks ( teep, some side kicks etc) cant do that very well. Thoughts?
