"It was kind of an amateur mistake. I mean, he kicked a check, and that's like a basic kickboxing move. I mean, he's probably done that a million times in his life, and that was just the wrong time to do it. The wrong angle, the wrong pressure. But that doesn't really make me kick differently. I think it looked ugly. It was nasty. But that's like saying in basketball when somebody twists their ankle, or breaks their ankle, 'You can't dunk like that because he did it that way.'
