This Sunday on the preliminary card main event, UFC veteran Clay ‘The Carpenter’ Guida picked up a rather one-sided unanimous decision win over Erik Koch, as he snapped his 2-fight skid that saw him drop back to back losses to Thiago Tavares and Brian Ortega.

During the course of the fight, Guida landed the first ever, and extremely rare, ‘scorpion kick’ on Koch several times while attempting to secure a takedown while Guida was along the cage.

While many fans had to do a double-take while watching the fight, Guida landed the kick cleanly several times, likely leaving Erik Koch, in addition to fight fans, rather confused.
