Anthony Pettis Executes a Flying Knee Off the Cage at UFC on Fox 6 (GIF)

A few years back, Anthony Pettis made headlines by performing one of the most amazing kicks in MMA history. The thing was so crazy, in fact, that lots of people (including us here at Total Pro Sports) were saying it was like something out of The Matrix.

Don’t believe it? See for yourself.

Not bad, right?

Well, over the weekend Pettis was up to his old Matrix-like tricks again. During his UFC on Fox 6 bout against Donald Cerrone, Pettis propelled himself off the cage for a brilliant flying knee to Cerrone’s face.

Here it is in slow motion, because you can’t even see it at full speed:

It’s not as good as the Matrix kick from 2009, but it’s still pretty cool if you ask me.

Anyway, Pettis would eventually knock Cerrone out with a kick to the liver in that same round, getting him close once again to a shot at the UFC lightweight title.

And while it may not have caused the knockout, this surely is the strike that everyone will remember from this fight.
