Ben Henderson drills Frankie Edgar with a head kick during UFC 150 at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Sat., Aug. 11, 2012. -- Photo by Esther Lin for MMA Fighting
Ben Henderson narrowly edged Frankie Edgar with a split decision in a truly close fight. During the closing moments of the bout, Benson landed a head kick, and our favorite photographer, Esther Lin was there to capture it perfectly.
Shown above is the well timed and captured 'kick face' (or whatever you want to call that), where Henderson's strike disfigures Edgar's face in a photo that I can only describe as both gruesome and beautiful.
