Yodsanklai’s Precision Left Kick

Yodsanklai Fairtex demonstrates precision in middle-kicking from his southpaw stance against Khalid Bourdif. Yod’s approach in this fight is no different from any other; he uses his right arm to measure distance and protect his face before unleashing his trademark left kick from a southpaw stance.

Every middle kick lands flush on the arm of Bourdif and the Moroccan is a fraction of a second too late to do anything about it. Instead, he attempts to counter with punches after the kick has connected with his arm. Of course, this is an ineffective counter strategy unless the punches KO Yod or cause significant pain or damage, which they don’t.

Therefore, Yod is able to execute his gameplan without much resistance and gets the points victory.
