UFC 137 goes down tomorrow night at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, and one fight that we feel is being criminally overlooked (televised on Spike or not) is the lightweight match-up between Dennis Siver and Donald Cerrone. Now, where both men are known for their elite striking game, its is Siver who has made his name off of the spinning back kick/turning side kick, picking up victories over Nate Mohr and Paul Kelly at UFC 93 and 105, respectively. Cerrone has stated that he feels the spinning back kick is Siver’s only weapon, and whether or not you agree with him (I don’t), you have to admit that it is one awesome weapon.
Above, non other than former UFC light heavyweight champion/Hawaii Five-0 star Chuck Liddell demonstrates his version of the kick, emphasizing the necessity of proper foot placement in order for the move to be successful. Below, we have included Joe Rogan’s breakdown of the move, as he’s been known to demonstrate it to the world’s finest fighters. Also, we’ve thrown in a brief Human Weapon segment devoted to the kick. If your one of those folks who likes to hand out candy on Halloween, this is a great method for dealing with those greedy kids who don’t understand that one Snickers is enough. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.
