Because Pride is no longer around, you rarely see soccer kicks anymore. I do however remember this amateur event a few years back when “Shogun” Delgado punted his opponent’s head. It wasn’t legal, and he did get disqualified, but it reminded me of the Pride days.
Asia’s ONE FC modifies the Unified Rules of mixed martial arts to allow soccer kicks in certain circumstances. At ONE FC 23: Warrior’s Way on December 5 in Manila, The Philippines, Timofey Nastyukhin landed a flying knee on Eduard Folayang and ended it definitively with just that move.
