Watch Junior Dos Santos Attempt The Pettis ‘Showtime Kick’

Since Anthony Pettis produced his jaw-dropping ‘Showtime’ kick off the cage against Ben Henderson at the final WEC event last year, you can bet that MMA practitioners around the world have been trying to replicate it in the gym.

The latest to try is UFC heavyweight star Junior Dos Santos and the good news is that we’ve got the video evidence of this momentous moment.

He doesn’t quite get the spin right, but we give him mad props for A) Being able to do it all despite weighing almost 100lbs more than Pettis, and B) Flying half-way across the cage in the process.

Check it out below, and then scroll down to compare it to the original Pettis kick.
