Anthony Pettis Flying Cage Kick At WEC 53: Video

Tonight the WEC ended with one of the most spectacular moments ever seen in mixed martial arts competition as Anthony Pettis floored Ben Henderson by running up the cage and launching back off it with a spinning head kick.

Color commentator Stephan Bonnar exclaimed that it was like something out of the Matrix.  If anyone was in any doubt as to why he’s nicknamed ‘Showtime’, now you know.

Appropriately Pettis said later that he was going to call the move ‘the Showdown Kick.’
