Ben Henderson Stole Thigh Punch Technique From Bruce Leeroy | UFC NEWS

The reigning UFC Lightweight champ Ben Henderson tells Fuel TV post UFC on Fox 5 he got the “thigh punch” move from Alex “Bruce Leeroy” Caceres.

“I actually planned that.  I’ve got to thank Alex Caceres on that one.  He came up to the MMA Lab and he did it to me and it actually hurt.  He’s a 135-pounder, he weighs 150 pounds soaking wet, and he did it to me and it hurt me.

I started using it and did it to my sparring partners and it hurt them.  They asked me to stop because it hurt too much. It worked. I stole it from Alex and thank him very much.

It was effective.  You saw it against Nate Diaz and it was pretty effective.  I’m always trying to add new tricks, work on my fundamentals, and get better and improve.”
