Was watching this with IA and Ast when it happened, witnessed the fall of a titan.


post fight press conf. Chris said the first thing they started to train on after the first fight, was checking Silva's kicks. He checked that kick perfectly, lifting his leg and turning his knee. Kicks are impossible to block in MMA, the best thing you can do is make both parties feel the pain. Weidman might be the next big champ now that GSP(vacation until he decides not to be anymore) & Now Silva(38, speculation on retirement already, just broke both shin bones), Jon Jones almost getting beat by Gustafvson(spelled wrong, I promise), Henderson losing to Pettis. I wouldnt be surprised if weidman goes undefeated his whole career. before he beat Silva the first time, every time someone in that weight class got a phone call for their next fight, they all hoped it wasnt VS Weidman.

Yea, perfect leg check. I bet a lot of MMAs are practicing 'checking' kicks now. Wonder if this was a freak event or any well placed check has a good chance of causing fracture.

I also wonder if they could wear shin pads or something =p

when ur leg is about a thick as a 5 year old girls wrists and u kick hard as shit that's probably bound to happen. dudes leg looks like stretch armstrong after that and I can't stop watching it
