Countering low kicks by kicking the supporting leg

Fight: Aljamain Sterling vs Renan Barao, UFC 214: Jones vs. Cormier


Aljamain Sterling made a mistake in the sequence above by going for the same move twice without setups. Sterling attacked with a left roundhouse kick to the body twice giving Barao the opportunity to counter with a right low kick to Aljamain’s supporting foot, sweeping him down. This is a beautiful Muay Thai counter attack.
Generally it is not a good idea to use the same attack twice.
