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!
