That's pretty god-damn cool . . . especially against a striker the likes of Bruno Carvalho. That's almost as good as the Showtime kick.

What an awesome kick. It's to bad its not in the UFC so more people won't get a chance to see it.

Everything has to be perfect for that kick to land, mixed with a lil luck! Props just for going for it!

I noticed Miguel Torres threw that in his last fight in the final second of one of the rounds...was cool to see even though he didnt land it

I know it's not what the thread is about but for what a killer instinct Zaromskis has he seems to struggle at finishing. H aggressively gets it done but it looks ugly.

As a Sifu in the Chinese/Filipino/Indonesian martial arts it is awesome to see traditional martial arts techniques in MMA. While they are few and far between it is always exciting when someone utilizes them or "pulls one off". That sh*t had to hurt. What a "kick". As far as traditional techniques go I especially enjoy seeing fighters throw "uppercut elbows" while they are in a clinch or in close. These are from the Filipino arts. They are brutal. Elbows are taught very early in my system. When teaching elbow strikes all angles are covered (see my avatar). I have seen Brandon Vera and BJ Penn use them on a few occasions. It is sad to see such an effective but basic technique underutilized in MMA though. There are other examples too but I like to refer the Uppercut Elbow. I would love to see a fighter use some Silat footwork. That would make my day. I used to love watching Genki Sudo fight. He was very "traditional". I enjoyed watching Tamden McCrory fight too. His school has a lot of the same lineage my school does. While he didn't delve into much oldschool traditional arts or try any super crazy maneuvers in his fights his standup game is basically a mirror image of what is taught at the beginning of my system. The funny part is I saw the Barncat fight a couple times before I knew there was a connection between our styles and schools. Something about him struck me as very oddly familiar. When I figured the connection out it all made sense. I am partial to the Barncat because of this. Back in the old days of MMA all we saw were specialized traditional martial artists.After those days the sport went into the evolution process to figure out what MMA even was, what worked etc. The basics have been covered and honed extremely well in the last 10 to 15 years but I really hope that different traditional martial arts styles, moves and/or techniques can be integrated back into MMA. Many aspects of the traditional arts can definitely be utilized in modern MMA. The kick by Zaromskis is a perfect example.
