My Favorite Pic
Actually I hate to burst your bubble, but that is clearly a blocked kick that doesn't count for much. Making contact with your pinky toes on someone's head isn't what hurts them (in fact it probably hurts yourself more)... it's when the shin bone connects with the head that it's a real hit.

You can clearly see Rashad has his hand up in that pic, and fully blocking the shin.

Acually i hate to burst yours but the pic shows it landing cleanly. Machida is a Karate fight not a muay thai fighter and thats exactly how the kick should look !

Its a switch kick, its like slapping someone with the top of your foot. Machida and GSP both do it alot. Its not ment to be a KO shot, more like a jab with your foot.
