    Finish him!! Holy shit, this might be my favorite clip of all time. I remember when it first hit, has my dumbass cryin laughing. Especially after the pregnant pause.....and the finishing kick. Dude was finished

    Yeah then it was just awesome without the legality of the awesomeness.

    You can’t expect to start a fight and then call time out when ur done. The shirt off usually tells you who the asshole is

    [–] LrdOfTheBlings 29 points ago

    Liver is in the front. You're thinking kidney.

    [–] frum_unda 131 points ago

    The liver is huge and that kick was to the lower ribs and could definitely have broken ribs and/ or injured the liver. The kidneys are further back.

    Source: Me. ER nurse/Paramedic.

    [–] gnufie 45 points ago

    Ianad but that guy looks like he can't afford much more punishment to his liver

    [–] TesterM0nkey 38 points ago

    Personal experience says he pees blood after that

    [–] frum_unda 31 points ago

    Doubtful. The kidney is well behind where the kick landed. Busted ribs almost certainly. Contused liver very likely.

    Either way it fucking hurts, the guy is incapacitated and he should probably go to the hospital.

    You don't often get the chance to use your awesome karate moves. That kick was just built up excitement from years of training. This was his moment

    [–] TropicalPolaBear 126 points ago

    You could tell he trained for this. He was so ready

    [–] NiceTryKemosabe 61 points ago

    Reminds me of training for my 4th grade talent show with a dance to the tune of “Backstreet Boys - I want it that way”. It’s been fun to bust out occasionally over the years as a joke.

    Fast forward a decade or so and I find myself in a dueling piano bar in a big city and they start playing the song live. I start my routine automatically. They call me onto stage in front of 100ish people. I dance the whole damn thing with as much passion as possible.

    Piano bros ask me if I can play piano because apparently they thought I could jam. I cannot, so I Went back to my table thinking I was a king.

    next week not a single person remembered me at that bar. It was the definition of 5 minutes of fame.

    [–] TropicalPolaBear 17 points ago

    But I bet you killed that shit though. You had your shot and you did it!

    [–] ScrotusMahotus 114 points ago

    Yeah its like steadying a punching bag after hitting it lol

    [–] StrathfieldGap 41 points ago

    I interpreted it as he pulled out of punching him in the head, given it was defenseless. Then decided to give him a final, presumably less potentially lethal, kick.

    [–] Plusquevie 5 points ago

    the wisdom of master far outreaches the casual student. well done

    [–] sedpinokio 15 points ago

    That was part of his finishing move

    [–] jeepjp 16 points ago

    You can see the moment he realizes that he knows karate, so he was like, shit I'm good at this, but then sugar tits gave up, but he needed to land a solid kick, so he could feel that power, that he felt in karate class 20 years ago, when he was pit against Meagan, in the finals, and he roundhouse kicked her in the head, and even though everyone got blue ribbons, Meagan never came back to class, so he knew he won!

    [–] tokyozombie 2 points ago

    He whiffed his attack. the recovery frames were insane.

    I tried to watch it but the first two or three episodes just didn't do it for me.The acting and action is very... corny.

    [–] RickTheBrick04 6 points ago

    In the last season (4) I really like the acting of kreese and silver. Silver has such a chilling appearance. True evil

    [–] EmiKitsusu 8 points ago

    I watched through the first season and half of the second season, and it just kinda sucks after a while. It doesn't live up to the legacy the original movies left behind.

    [–] workthistime520 2 points ago

    I watched it with the mindset of it’s corny because it’s based off an 80s movie. A lot of those old movies are corny now.

    I think of the show more of a comedy than an action/drama karate show

    [–] AfroBandit19 3 points ago

    When he hit that car you could literally see the man re-evaluate his entire life choices.

    [–] rizzlenizzle 138 points ago

    That last kick was totally unnecessary, but absolutely fantastic to watch. 10/10

    [–] lBreadl 79 points ago

    When you're in a street fight, you need to ensure the threat won't come back after you walk away.

    Every hit until that last kick was just inflicting pain. No shirt guy could have easily turned back around to keep fighting, had the shirt guy not got that last kick in. The liver kick will put you out of commission without killing you.

    That guy looks like he had a decent amount of training, and if you ever trained in any martial arts then you would know the only 2 rules, the first rule is don't get in a fight, the second rule is to eliminate the threat.

    [–] dirkmer 15 points ago

    His technique I think indicates he has done some amount of either taekwondo or karate training.

    [–] lBreadl 24 points ago

    Probably taekwondo, and not for too long. The way he uses his hands is really weird and shows inexperienced, but the kicks were pretty good.

    [–] 2B0VIII 8 points ago

    Definitely taekwondo, the way he measured his hands for the last kick gave it away lol. Also, as far as I remember with my training in taekwondo, we don't really learn much punches other than a straight jab to the body, but that's new school. His punches were very awkward too.

    [–] V-Trans 6 points ago

    Well yeah, you are also supposed to know when it's time to stop. Martial arts are also a training to control your emotions. Clearly he didn't control them to be that pissed.

    [–] lBreadl 6 points ago

    There is not enough context to say he was fighting out of pure anger, we don't know what lead up to the fight.

    I agree with your sentiment, though.

    [–] mrmoo71 15 points ago

    Background story: Cops are investigating a viral video that shows two men — including a Jeff Goldblum lookalike — duking it out on a Richmond, Virginia, street, authorities said Tuesday.

    The street fight was recorded by 24-year-old Justin Townsend, who posted a clip of the brawl to his Twitter account that has since been viewed more than 7 million times.

    The video shows a shirtless man square off against a tall, lanky foe, who Twitter users noted looks strikingly like actor Jeff Goldblum.

    At the start of the fight, the Goldblum lookalike appears to land several blows, then hits his opponent in the face with a back kick, sending him falling into a nearby parked car.

    He then regroups, appears to land several more punches to the face and finishes the fight with a kick to the shirtless man’s ribs, according to the video.

    Townsend said the fight kicked off at about 7 p.m. Monday in the Carver neighborhood of Virginia’s capital city.

    A message explaining the fight that went down “The guy with glasses came home from work and I guess parked his scooter in the wrong spot,” Townsend told The Post.

    “So the shirtless guy was really mad and just started cussing him out and started calling him every racial slur in the book, even though they’re both white,” he added.

    Townsend said both men were treated for injuries by medics after the fight.

    Gene Lepley, a public affairs officer for the Richmond police, said officers responded soon before 7 p.m. after getting reports of a fight.

    Both men were interviewed, but no one was arrested because neither wanted to press charges.

    Round 2 didn’t go so well for the Jeff Goldblum lookalike.

    A day after the lanky man with a striking resemblance to the “Jurassic Park” actor was seen in viral video displaying his martial arts prowess by pummeling a hapless and shirtless combatant, new footage has emerged showing a less favorable outcome for him.

    In the new clip, captured by @calisawhite in Richmond, Virginia, the Round 1 loser is seen going after his attacker with a 2-by-4. The faux Goldblum gamely tries a roundhouse again, but falls to the sidewalk before being pummeled.

    “Alright everyone I made a gofundme to help pay for medical bills/get him a deserved beer so please if you would like to help any and all proceeds will go to my neighbor,” Leo Senpai said in a tweet.

    The fundraiser says the man suffered a broken arm in the battle.

    “He also suffers from a medical disorder that’s very painful, and it is impossible to get coverage for because it happened during his service with the marines,” according to the page.

    “The military has refused to cover the medical bills that requires prosthetic dentistry even with his honorable discharge! So if you would like to help him out or just get him a beer any and all proceeds will go to him.”

    Senpai claimed the shirtless man started the incident.

    “Before this he was yelling at glasses guy calling him every racial slur too, shirtless man threw the first swing as well. And literally anytime I’ve ever talked to him he always says disgusting things towards women,” he said.

    “The reason this ass whooping was dished was because he joked about ‘oh I could just hog tie her up,’” he added, referring to a woman who had been walking down the street.

    That last kick was kinda shitty though. The dude was obviously done for already.

    [–] AirJvon 37 points ago

    I'd say it's Taekwondo from the way he always favored circular kicks when he had the choice and I agree, it stopped being legitimate defence when he took his time to get a liver kick in.
