    I have been watching UFC from the beginning, but I have missed some events here and there, but what move have we not seen yet? I can think of one, and that is the sweeping leg kick, or whatever you call it when the fighter crouches down and swings his leg around and sweeps the opponent. Always wanted to see that move actually executed in a fight. Be cool to see someone like Cro-Cop go for his head kick and the other fighter go low and kick his leg out in mid swing.

    You've been playing too much Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. Trying that shit in a real fight is way too high risk, low reward.

    You're setting yourself up to be kicked in the face, kneed, or easily taken down for what? To at best sweep your opponent's legs while being in poor position to take advantage of it?

    I tried that on a girl when I was in 2nd grade. She stepped over my leg and kicked me in my face. She's a single mother to 3 kids now so I think I won the war but the battle was lost.

    That sweep is surprisingly effective. Mostly the element of surprise is simply bypassed in favour of repetition and drilling, even at high level. Creative fighting is rare.
    Remember the showtime kick? The simple front toe kick?
    The sweep will come.
