Gökhan Saki leg kicks Dubai radio host
Gökhan Saki is one of the best kickboxers in the world who retired from kickboxing not long ago and recently made news by signing with the UFC despite having only 1 professional MMA fight.
Nevertheless, it is always interesting to see how a truly elite, world class level kickboxer can do in MMA as long as he isn’t thrown to the wolves and given some time to develop his skills in other areas.
In this video we see the newly signed UFC fighter Gökhan Saki leg kick a radio host during a recent interview on Dubai Eye Sport 103.8FM. Though it doesn’t look like the hardest blow it still causes quite a bit of pain for Dubai Eye Sport radio host, Chris McHardy.
It really is just a light tap but an elite-level kickboxer like Gökhan Saki throws it with perfect technique and accuracy, digging his shin bone in the exact right spot to cause the most pain.
After watching this video, it is simply frightening to imagine the amount of damage a guy like Gökhan Saki could do to your average untrained Joe with a leg kick if he really wanted to hurt them.
Gökhan Saki is expected to make his UFC debut at UFC Fight Night 115 in September 2017 but an opponent has not yet been named.
