Silva's kick

Steven Seagal was the secret behind the weapon

"Pay up homie." Vitor Belfort (L) joins the presser

At the post-fight press conference, Anderson Silva mentioned that action movie star Steven Seagal had taught him The Kick that had Vitor Belfort's name on it. Seagal and Silva thought it might be a good one to use against Vitor, so he practiced it a lot, and discussed using it moments before the cage door closed.

Seagal was sitting in the shadows to the side of the press conference. I asked him if the kick had a name. It did not.

I suggested the "kickball kick," and immediately regretted it. (subsequent research suggests it may be distantly related to Seagal's famous "Dozen Nut" kick.)

The trick, he said, is you lift your leg "and spear it straight up the middle."

Vitor, gracious in defeat, showed up at the presser after his medical check up. He didn't get a single question.

I felt bad about that, though in the heat of the moment I couldn't think of anything to ask except. "How is your face?" It didn't seem like a very dignifying question, so I held my tongue.
