Jamie Kilstein and Dustin Rhodes interacting about ONE Championship represents enjoyable Twitter discourse by all accounts.
The two entertainers bonded over a recent video clip featuring a somersault groin shot shared on social media from ONE’s deep video library.

Kilstein, who is an ardent pro wrestling fan using wrestling nomenclature, stated, “This is my new finisher” in regards to the acrobatic cup check.
Rhodes, a veteran who has performed over five different decades within pro wrestling, responded succinctly with laughter by tweeting, “lol”.
Jamie Kilstein and Dustin Rhodes
The artist formerly known as Goldust in WWE, Dustin Rhodes is All Elite nowadays. The current AEW wrestler utilized a finisher many years ago that focused on groin striking, The Shattered Dreams, so perhaps there was a level of technique appreciation there as well.
We need to do better with increasing AEW and ONE Championship crossover instances, in this writer’s estimation.
Kilstein is a standup comic who is also a podcast host delving into combat sports, mental health, etc.
Wu Ze is the flipping fighter in question from the widely circulated clip. He was testing skills inside the ONE Circle against Wu Huiqiang. The competitor who was the unfortunate recipient of the errant strike to the genitals.
The incident took place at ONE FC 28: Dynasty of Champions in June 2015. A martial arts extravaganza that transpired at Guangzhou International Sports Arena in Guangzhou, Guangdong, China.
Ze attempted the hybrid flip stomp in the second stanza of the bout. He eventually won the fight via rear-naked choke in the waning seconds of that same round.
Wu Ze improved his overall MMA record to 2-2 there. While his opponent Wu Huiqiang fell short in his mixed martial arts debut.
Ze went on to fight later that same night when he bested Jianbing Yang. That later victory came via split decision to earn a tournament championship at 125 pounds while improving his .500 MMA record to a winning one at 3-2.
Where does this flip stomp rank within the continuum of ONE Championship strikes below the beltline?
