Did anyone see this!
I watched Thursday night and got to see what I thought was the wildest move yet in MMA!
Anthony Pettis vs Ben Henderson...great fight and very close until Pettis brought it to a new level.
With no rules against it, in the final seconds of the 5th round, Pettis rather than continue to chase the reverse circling Henderson, he used the cage and wall walked a step sideways and landed a sweep kick to Hendersons head for a knock down.
It was a thing of beauty, like nothing I've seen so far.
We'll see if they make a rule against it or more guys try it!
I thought it was awesome!!

The odds of pulling that off are so remote that no rule would be necessary to stop it. I'm not sure what is more amazing - the kick, the fact that it was pulled off after 4 and a half rounds of action, or the fact that Henderson stayed awake.

This kick is going to be on a lot of highlight reels. Even after watching the replays,I couldn't believe what I saw.

It was a very fitting end to the last fight ever in the WEC. The lighter weight classes will be a great addition to the UFC.
