I know its the Fancy pick but that kick GG put on CC was so unreal since the only way anyone thought GG was going to win was by sub and for him to use CC's bread and butter to win was so shocking. Plus I won drinks for the night since this guy I was not to fond of was running his mouth at the bar so I said since you know so much you want to put a bet on that fight he told me I was crazy for taking GG and I better get my credit card ready. Well needless to say I drank till I puked! Oh you stupid ass It was tape delayed!

As far as head kicks in MMA. I'll always remember Pete Williams' head kick to Mark Coleman...In fact I like it so much it's my new avatar haha!

Any Cung kick. And one word, Rashad Evans head kick over Sean Salmon. Or maybe earlier in the fight when 5'7" Sean Salmon went for the bicycle kick.

That kick was so vicious and he connected so well that Farber's body falls back in the opposite direction he was heading

I think it's for several reasons

1) most guys telegraph these kicks like there is no tomorrow
2) if you miss you really set yourself up. Something that I don't get is why guys never capitalize on missed kicks where they guy just spins out
3) The make you really easy to take down (see Severn vs, Bosset)
4) Once inside, they don't have much power. The fighters spend most of the time out of the range (usually too close)


some other nice head kicks

GSP vs. Hughes 2
Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop
Cro cop and Aleks
Yves vs. Josh

Cro Cop on Igor or Cro Cop on Aleks. I really like Remy's flying knee turned head kick though.

CC on Hunt



I think thats the hardest Cro Cop kick to land since Hunt was leaning into it and it knocked a 290lb dude down...still didn't put him to sleep though...wtf.
