Technique Tuesday

Technique Tuesday: GSP’s Superman Punch

Continuing with signature moves from headliners of this weekend’s UFC 154 in Montreal, this week’s Technique Tuesday will focus on champ Georges St-Pierre’s trademarked Superman punch.

Like last week’s flying knee, this move’s roots come from the striking art of Muay Thai and can be used as a devasting finish a la Travis Browne vs. Stefan Struve or as an effective set-up, like St-Pierre often uses it as.  When the welterweight king takes on interim champ Carlos Condit Saturday night, I wouldn’t be surprised if either of the two creative strikers throws in a few Superman punches.

Check out the awesome breakdown of the move above, powered by the folks over at MMA Surge and, as always, make sure to check back next week for another great technique!
