To the face!

At least that's what Anthony Pettis thought as he leapt off the cage and landed this iconic flying kick to the face of his opponent, Benson Henderson. The fight took place on December 16, 2010 at WEC 53.

While the kick didn't end the fight outright, it did help Pettis to a unanimous decision victory, becoming the last WEC Lightweight Champion in the process.
