Knockout of the Day: A Pre-NewsRadio Joe Rogan Body Shot KO’s Some Fool With a Spinning Back Kick

(And to think, if Joe had done the same thing to Andy Dick, the world might have been spared the AIDS epidemic.) 

Do you remember the first time you came across that video of Joe Rogan teaching Georges St. Pierre the art of the spinning back kick? If so, you probably recall watching Rogan obliterate those heavy bags and quietly pondering to yourself, “My God, how many lives Rogan has claimed with that kick in the past?” And while we can’t attest to the exact number of trophy skulls lining the walls of Rogan’s humble abode, we can now confirm that there is at least one, which has likely been converted into a bubbler in the time since.

A video of Rogan in his Taekwondo heyday has been rounding MMA blogs for the past few days now, so in order to help distract you from the realization that your favorite sport is an absolute joke, we’ve thrown it after the jump. It is approximately 20 seconds long, features one strike, and may or may not cause you to shit your pants out of empathy for the poor bastard whose intestines are utterly annihilated with little more than a swivel of Rogan’s hips.

In my opinion the spinning back kick or as some people like to call it turning sidekick is the most powerful kicking martial arts. I'm surprised we don't see it more often. With the recent Edson Barbosa and Uriah Hall KO's I think were going to see this type of kick more often. Even though the latter two kicks are actually's spinning wheel and spinning hook kick, they're all still in same family… I think were going to see the traditional martial arts begin to make a comeback. Especially with UFC firing all the wrestlers…

What's scary is that I've seen recent footage of Joe throwing that at a heavy bag and its even nastier now.
