Spinning Back Fist
 
I was watching an old fight, it was Wanderlei v Fujita, and I noticed about two thirds into the fight Fujita attempts a spinning back fist. It didn't land of course but it's not a move you see attempted very often in MMA competition, I imagine because it's very difficult not to telegraph it and it requires alot of space.

But I was wondering if anyone here knew of any fights where this move did land effectively?? I for one don't think I can recall any but I would be interested to see it.

Anyone?

Shoney hit Serra more than once with the spinning back fist (the first time is the famous one in a UFC fight, the second was during the Ultimate Fighter 4). The thing is, they may not be as easy to spot as you might think because for the second fight (during TUF 4) Serra mentioned before the fight that he'll be looking for the spinning back fist, but yet during the fight Shoney connected with the spinning back fist (although it didn't knock Serra out like in the UFC match).

Yea, its a pretty hard move to pull off, and just imagine if the guy ducks, oh man youre pretty much dead, cuase youll think where is he cuase you have a bit of dizziness and hes ducking, then he comes up with uppercut:laugh: but yea, id use it for competition never for mma, ill try and find a video for you.

you're right, Shonie did connect at the TUF final but he was no longer the man he used to be back in 2001

Hideo Tokoro's spinning backfist KO of Alexander Franca "Pequeno" Nogueira was a pretty good one. It was not only a great spinning backfist, but was also Pequeno's 1st loss in 3 years. It was at K-1 HERO'S II. Here's the clip, it occurs at 3 minutes 42 seconds into the HL:
