Analysis of Arthur Meyer’s Scissor Kick KO
A great fighter can set up and get KOs with even the wildest technique. Today, we analyze how Arthur Meyer set up his scissor kick KO and how you can do the same.
Arthur has his opponent, Petsuphan, near the ropes. However, he does not have Petsuphan cornered nor does he have his back against the ropes. Arthur and Petsuphan are both standing parallel to the ropes; Petsuphan could still escape easily.
Arthur throws a lead leg low kick that’s evaded. He cleverly uses the missed kick to step out at an angle. He can now corner Petsuphan easily. But he also has lead foot dominance, and therefore, rather than pressing forward, he chooses to end the fight immediately.
