Analysis of Yodlekpet’s Leg Kick KO
On the edge is a bad place to be. That much is obvious. However, there’s something worse.
Being trapped against the ropes means your opponent can have their way with you if you don’t push back. However, there is something else that few expect. When you’re pushed back against the ropes, your weight, of course, will shift heavily onto your rear leg. Because of this, you are unable to check leg kicks properly. This is when Yodlekpet truly begun to have his way.
Yodlekpet had been landing bomb after bomb with his hands, so each movement forwarded prompted a panic reaction from his opponent. Yodlekpet took advantage of this and tore up his opponent’s rear leg. For a closer look at the details, check out the finish and Evolve MMA breakdown below:
The rear leg kick is a technique utilized by few. This is unfortunate due to its extreme effectiveness, as demonstrated in the finish above. However, this technique is seldom used, I’d wager, mostly because that few know how to properly set it up. After all, the rear leg is so far away.
