Anderson Silva Front Kick KO (GIF)

It is not often that we see the front kick utilized in mixed martial arts, but during last night’s Middleweight Championship bout at UFC 126, Anderson Silva didn’t just put it to use; he executed it to perfection, striking Vitor Belfort in the jaw and knocking the challenger out.

It wasn’t the best kick an MMA bout has produced this year, but the result has us believing that it may very well be the most significant one thus far.

Rumors are flying that this devastating kick was taught to Silva by Steven Seagal. (SBNation)
