Yep it's already up here somewhere. Personally I don't get the hype behind this video, the kick isn't anything special.

I think it's special because he's showing GSP how to do the kick correctly. We've seen GSP and other fighters throw these kicks before and they don't land with as much force because of improper technique. TKD may not be the best specialization to utilize in the octagon but I like the fact that fighters like GSP and Silva take the time to learn technique from so many disciplines of fighting, not just boxing, bjj, mt and wrestling.

but yea, saw this a while ago.

Except it seems sort of ridiculous when GSP has landed the kick, effectively and powerfully, at the highest level of combat competition. Perfect form isn't everything in MMA - effectiveness is.


But yep lots of fighters practice a ton of disciplines, one I've been surprised to learn most fighters practice is Capoeira. Alves, Anderson Silva, Junior dos Santos etc all practice it.

true, but why shouldnt he learn the proper technique? he can learn it with joe, so being a smart fighter he took advantage of the opportunity

there is a difference between landing the kick pretty well, and being a threat with it

Siver > GSP

AS teepercut > teep

if he really learned it well GSP could be doing that thing he never does anymore and actually finish some fights with a HL reel move:thumb02:...shields is the perfect guy to test it on

GSP once said to the media that Joe Rogan has the best turning side kick he has ever seen, I guess he was right. Go Joe!! :thumb02:
