Well, apparently one of the first fighters to ever use calf kicks on a televised bout was Ricard Arona who made his professional debut in the year 2000.
Brazil’s Ricardo Arona is best known for a six-year stint in PRIDE and then an undefeated run in ADCC where he claimed three gold medals in only two years.
Arona was a jiu-jitsu specialist so its very odd that he is one of the first fighters to use calf kicks regularly.
Good to know!
