GSP's LHK against Matt Hughes - Timing, Luck, Anticipation or...?
I was watching UFC Unleashed this evening and they had GSP vs. Hughes II. I'm wondering about the head kick GSP throws which effectively ends the fight. He obviously catches Hughes trying to catch a lower kick.
Is this a question of:
- a bit of luck
- genuinely setting it up with the eye movement (as GSP says after the fight)
I am not a fighter, but would love the thoughts of all fighters out there. When you see a pro get caught out that bad, what does it come down to? Is it like in football where if you run the ball enough the play action pass becomes a good option (ie, to follow the analogy, if you throw enough low kicks, a head kick will do the deed)?
