Video: Anthony Pettis' 'signature moves' for Donald Cerrone UFC on FOX 6 fight in Chicago

UFC on FOX 6's Anthony Pettis demonstrates his "signature moves," including the sensational "Showtime Kick," over-the-top-roundhouse kick and the roundhouse kick before his hoedown with "Cowboy" Donald Cerrone this weekend (Sat., Jan. 26, 2013). Heads up!

Perhaps Donald Cerrone should shoot for that takedown first at UFC on Fox 6 rather than dare the unpredictable and unorthodox Anthony Pettis to hit him with his best boot.

Pettis -- the man who landed one of the most incredible strikes in the history of mixed martial arts (MMA), the aptly-named "Showtime Kick" -- was recently on FUEL TV to demonstrate his "Signature Moves." Of course, the "Showtime Kick," which he unbelievably planted on the chin of Ben Henderson to capture the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Lightweight championship back in Dec. 2010 (see and read more about it here), is the crown jewel of his dynamic MMA skill set.

He explains its origins and effectiveness:

"My flashiest move is the 'Showtime Kick.' This move is something I've been doing since I was a kid -- I used to jump off walls and break boards. You're setting your opponent up with high kicks, you're running toward the cage, launching off the cage with the same foot you want to kick with and you're using the momentum of the cage to spring you off into your opponent's head. If you launch yourself off right and hit with the right part of your shin into your opponent's head, there is endless potential for how hard you can kick."

But, that's not all.

Aside from his "flashiest move," Pettis also highlighted two others that should concern "Cowboy" at the United Center in Chicago, Ill., on fight night (Sat., Jan. 26, 2013). "Shwotime" will also threaten with his over-the-top-roundhouse kick and the roundhouse kick, giving Cerrone -- an accomplished Muay Thai fighter in his own right -- quite a bit to calculate when the two square up in the "Windy City."

The good news for Cerrone is that he won't have to worry about Pettis "'Cro Copping' a carton of liquid chickens" inside the Octagon.
