VIDEO: Michael Bisping cracks his coach in the jaw with mistimed spinning wheel kick

Lesson one of hitting pads is to actually hit the pads.

Michael Bisping must have thought he had his taller coach with him this week as he misjudged a spinning wheel kick during his open workout ahead of meeting with Anderson Silva at UFC London.

Former pro boxer Jason Parillo was on the receiving end of the Taekwondo technique as ‘The Count’ landed about six inches above the target.

To be fair, Parillo took the shot to the jaw like a champ and, if not for the glory of replays, we might have thought that our eyes had been fooled on first viewing.

But no, he was definitely kicked in the head.
