Justin Gaethje Leg Kick Highlight

[embedded content] Former World Series of Fighting (RIP) champion Justin Gaethje is a straight up wild man. “The Highlight” has brought his “kill or be killed” style to the UFC for three Fight of the Year worthy bouts thus far. An outsider may judge Gaethje as a basic swinging brawler, at a quick glance. But the former Division 1 All-American assaults with a purpose, breaking his opponent over time with his brutal pace and chopping low kicks. Gaethje’s style works best when the other man is standing in front of him, open to exchange. Exhausted and stuck in place, that’s...

Fighter of Interest: Yusuke Yachi

Yachi always brings a funky new look with his hair. © RIZIN FF From Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto to Kyoji Horiguchi, the KRAZY BEE gym has consistently produced fearless, brick-fisted knockout artists. With Horiguchi splitting time at American Top Team, RIZIN lightweight Yusuke Yachi (20-6 MMA, 5-0 RIZIN) has emerged as the standard bearer for the prestigious team. A gentle soul sporting a big smile and funky hair, Tokyo’s Yachi flips a switch when its time to compete. Japanese MMA entrances put the UFC to shame.

Jose Aldo Leg Kick Highlight

Jose Aldo (R) kicks Mark Hominick during their Featherweight Championship bout at UFC 129 in the Rogers Centre on April 30, 2011 in Toronto, Ontario. Jose Aldo, leg terrorist. Since his days in the WEC (RIP), the Brazilian limb-destroyer has earned a reputation for low kicking with fury and grace. While they’ve long been prominent, his vicious leg kicks reached mythical popularity after a particularly ugly beating of Urijah Faber. The former WEC featherweight champion’s leg was so battered, his cornerman had to carry him to the stool between rounds. While Aldo’s low kicks have never directly resulted in a stoppage,...
