UFC Lightweight Anthony Pettis

Poor, Benson Henderson. God only knows how many times he’s already seen Anthony Pettis’ (pictured) “Showtime Kick” on various highlight reel clips, and that’s not including experiencing it firsthand or viewing it in his nightmares, but he better get ready to witness the strike dozens of more times as UFC 164 approaches.

The UFC has just released the extended video preview for their August 31 rematch, and guess what happens to be included in the footage? That’s right, one cage kick heard ’round the world.

Much has happened since their initial December 2010 encounter. Henderson went on to capture the UFC lightweight title and successfully defend his throne three times, while Pettis rattled off three straight after dropping his big league debut.

Multiple injuries have prevented Pettis from reaching a UFC title fight, but showtime is finally almost here for “Showtime.”

UFC 164 takes place inside Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
