Bloody Elbow breaks down the cut kick, just another way fun way in MMA to put your opponent on their ass.
frankie edgar has a “holy shit that was easy” look on his face. fucking disgusting
I doubt they do much damage but it sure does look emberassing. The judges probably give you some good points for it too.
Just as in Muay Thai the cut kick has more of a psychological effect on your opponent and the judges.
It scores technique points and makes the person who got their leg kicked from under them look like talentless chumps.
it’s gotta be all flash and no thunder if Cung Le uses it
At my last grading I got hit with this. My right calf wasn’t right for a month after. It’s not the most damaging technique but no walk in the park either.
