Even Anthony (Showtime) Pettis is a little tired of hearing about his infamous 'Showtime Kick.'

Following 24 back-and-forth minutes of fighting, Pettis ran up the cage wall and delivered arguably the most spectacular kick in MMA history. The strike dropped Henderson, allowing Pettis to steal the momentum and capture a unanimous-decision victory.

Not only did the kick turn the tide of an extremely close fight, it was also featured on countless sports' highlight shows and became a viral video sensation.

Now that Pettis is set to challenge Henderson for the UFC lightweight championship in the headliner of UFC 164 in Milwaukee Saturday, the 'Showtime Kick' is front and centre once again.

Though the Roufusport fighter said he will always be proud of his performance that night, he admitted sometimes people forget about his other skills.
