    Bas Rutten talks about it and wonders why no one's doing it at 29:50. I've timestamped the video:



    If you try this technique out on a bag, it has almost the same power as a Thai roundhouse kick. EXCEPT you can deliver it as high as a highkick AND it has the speed and mobility of a punch. And, like a kick, even if you block it then it still fucking hurts. It's like a cheat code. It's such an awesome move.

    Why aren't we seeing it in MMA that much?

    This is a serious move. It's like a Thai kick but you can go high and it's mobile and fast. It's fucking lethal.

    Someone might duck it and pull a small package or something.

    I think John Dodson knocked out TJ Dillashaw with a clothesline. It was a forearm strike for sure.

    How many people have you seen hit it in high level competition?

    Or worse yet, a Sunset Press. So humiliating.

    Could definitely end a fight with this technique.

    I'd rather see a DDT when going for a guillotine, or would that be considered spiking?

    Why no figure four? If done correct, no can defend.

    Same reason we dont see them climb the cage and jump off on someone I guess. Would be interesting since it not against the rules. When someone finishes with a Boston crab I'm done.
