Spinning Back Fist
A Back Fist is performed by forming a fist and striking with the tops of the two largest knuckles. A Spinning Back Fist is performed when the attacker swivels 360 degrees before landing the punch, adding extra momentum to the attack.
One of the most impressive examples of a Spinning Back Fist being used in mixed martial arts took place at UFC 31: Locked & Loaded. "Mr. International" Shonie Carter knocked out Matt Serra with the technique.
