Anthony Pettis Lands Unbelievable Head Kick At WEC 53 (GIF)

At WEC 53, Anthony Pettis challenged champion Ben Henderson and became the final WEC lightweight champion via unanimous decision. Pettis also becomes the number one contender for the UFC 155-pound belt. The most significant thing to come from the bout, however, was an unbelievable head kick that Pettis landed which looked like something out of a movie.

Words cannot describe one of the most stunning acts of athleticism I have seen in sports. Quite possibly a defining moment for MMA in the mainstream media. This will HAVE to be on ESPN and their Top Ten plays on SportsCenter. Have a look!
