PostSubject: Clint Hester and the Superman Elbow From Hell   Mon May 04, 2015 3:03 pm

Quote :
So I’m trolling my way through r/MMA this morning because I am a legitimate MMA journalist and that is how I start the morning hunt for news, when I come across this mini-gallery of standing elbows in MMA. While it’s missing most of the classics (Silva-Fryklund and Mein-Cyborg come to mind), it does include a gif of one of my personal favorites: Clint Hester vs. Bristol Marunde from the TUF 17 Finale. Just an absolutely beautiful bit of violence, there.

Being unable to remember the last time I saw Hester in the octagon, I start Googling “Headbussa” (eesh) to find out what he’s been up to. The answer is an all too familiar one for fighters these days: Dealing with an injury. Specifically, Hester has been recuperating a broken foot that forced him out of his Fight Night 63 scrap with Luke Barnatt just last month. Funny how you forget who’s been out for how long when you’re reading/writing about injuries every day (looking at you, Khabib, Gusty, Cain, Dominic…).

Anyways, while catching up on the whereabouts of Hester, I happen to stumble across a video from his (apparent) muay Thai days back in 2010. In it, Hester finishes his opponent with a SUPERMAN ELBOW that looks like something straight out of a comic book. My question is: Has everyone already seen this video? And if so, why does it not receive more praise for being the technical brilliance it displays?

You guys should probably give this video a look, is what I’m saying.

I don't think I've ever seen a superman elbow before, much less one as pretty as that!
