Chances are if you talk to someone about Anthony Pettis, at one point, the “Showtime Kick” will inevitably come up. Sure, we’ve all seen footage of Pettis flooring Benson Henderson with the move a bazillion times now, but does that make it any less cool? No. No it does not.

UFC 181 will be hosted by the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will also feature welterweight champ Johny Hendricks taking on Robbie Lawler.
