    Can heavyweight fighters do high kicks?


    Im new to watching mma and have never really seen any 1 hit knock outs by kicks.
    like i cant really picture brock lesnar kicking above his head and knocking out a guy with who is 6'3+ unless hes on the ground.
    I know cro crop is a good kicker, do heavyweights usually stick to low kicks or what

    When I was 220 and fat (and did have some decent muscle) I could do splits and kick hard to the head.

    Anyways, Im no mma fighter, but size has little or nothing to do with it. Actually, now that I think about it, size can slow you down so that may be a factor in a fight. You dont want to kick that high if your slower, the distance is great.

    Google Gabriel Gonzaga Cro-cop knockout. Awesome head kick at HW. Pat Barry also throws a lot of kicks. Not sure if you don't see as many because HW are not from kickboxing or Muy Thai background. Plenty of HW boxers wrestlers and jui jitsu guys.

    Travis Browne has some good high kicks, but he came from a basketball background.
