It’s been a while since I had a new entry in my MMA, soccer style series but this one sure fits in there. Take a look:
Now he doesn’t get it quite right as his leg is too extended before he does the flying kick. But other than that, this has all the elements of a a killing blow. He targets the neck just right to create the kind of whiplash that does terminal damage. Just look at the way the guy’s head snaps when the kick lands.
Also, don’t forget that soccer player wear studded shoes. So the impact point is really small and made of metal which means minimal energy bleed and potential puncturing.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: soccer is a thug’s sport.
