Curtis Blaydes UFC heavyweight say that “The best defense against a flying knee is constant movement.” “The best defense is constant movement,” Blades said in an interview with SE. – When I fought Alistair Overeem, a man who has really strong knees, albeit not flying, I never let him get hit by them. Because I was moving. Do not kneel strikers on a static target. If you keep moving, they won’t have time to prepare the flying knee. Move and move, don’t stand. “
Of course, in the case of any blow or movement, there are times when the fighter is so fast and athletic that this more than covers any technical errors. Recently fired from the UFC sport for his history of domestic violence, Luis Peña has a super-athletic flying knee. In kickboxing, he knocked out an opponent, breaking this blow twice in a row, as if it were some kind of jab.

Corey Sandhagen’s flying knee can be very technical, but he often hits it on the same athleticism and timing, not really bothering with the purity of the execution.
“A flying knee isn’t the most technical thing in the world,” Corey explained to the UFC. – There are simply moments when it is impossible not to hit him. You should throw it into the zone, the space where, as you think, the opponent will take the next step. Either you kick your knee from afar when they just don’t expect it. A flying knee doesn’t have to be perfectly technical to get a knockout. It’s just a really hard punch that I hit, and if you run into it, then you have a bad evening. Well, against undersized fighters, I always try a flying knee, it would be foolish not to. “
