Anthony Pettis is the man who delivered the greatest kick in MMA history, and on Saturday night he added another highlight-reel kick to his resume: Pettis delivered a sensational head kick to knock Joe Lauzon out at UFC 144.
Pettis landed a picture-perfect kick to the jaw of Lauzon to knock him down, then landed a couple of punches to the face on the ground to finish it before the referee could jump in.
The fight lasted just 1 minute, 21 seconds.
"I feel awesome," he said. "I'm the best in the lightweight division. I'm going to come for my title shot."
Pettis threw hard kicks from the get-go, landing right from the start. Although Lauzon landed a couple of punches of his own, it was Pettis who was in control in the early going, and afterward Pettis said he wants the winner of the Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson fight next.
"Hopefully whoever comes out tonight, I get the winner," Pettis said.
