Leg Kick Dominance

I've always been a firm believer that leg kicks could determine a fight, and I love seeing them. Could anyone suggest fights to watch in which leg kicks were a good factor? Ex: Faber vs Aldo

Leg kicks are effective but FAR from everything. To me they are more of a good distraction and pace setter as a stand up guy. They open you up for good combos etc but really don't do a ton of damage especially if you are snapping them out there fast. They can be a lot more effective if you are kicking his legs when he is down but in a lot of amateur promotions this is not allowed(Some kicks/knees are allowed to a downed opponent just not to the head.)

Shogun vs machida 1 (shogun got screwwd by the judges)
Forrest griffin vs rampage
Keith jardine vs chuck

Probably the best on though is the tuf 2 finally fight
Keith jardine vs Kerry schall. Keith wins a tko with a leg kick.
