Technique of the Week – Ashlee Evans-Smith – Setup for Spinning Back Kick
In this week’s MyMMANews.com Technique of the Week, UFC women’s bantamweight fighter Ashlee Evans-Smith uses a jab and side kick to set up a spinning back kick. She is joined by former Bellator light heavyweight champion Emanuel Newton.
Evans-Smith uses the side kick to create “range” or distance between herself and her opponent before turning her back to full extend her leg during the spinning back kick. Watch for yourself.
