Mixed martial arts is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and people are beginning to pay more and more attention to the sport as it’s popularity continues to rise and the sport is more accessible than ever before on networks across the nation.
The top promotion, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, takes center stage and they are always finding ways to promote the organization while going on tours to show love for those who deserve it.
This week, the UFC travels to Fort Campbell, Kentucky for “UFC Fight Night 31: Fight For The Troops 3″ for a free show on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Hall of Famer is one of the fighters who has been meeting with the military to show the support from the promotion.
During the meeting, a soldier asked Liddell to show off some of the skills he flashed inside of the throughout his impressive career and he was happy to meet the request.
Liddell gave a spinning back kick to the soldier, who was dressed in body armor, to show off the power that fighters can pack behind their devastating strikes. Of course, the shot landed right in the soldier’s gut and he was clearly feeling the pain.
Luckily for us, UFC reporter Megan Olivi was on scene to shoot video of the moment the kick took place and you can watch the results below:
