Anderson Silva's leg break analysis



view full image

"This moment from last night's fight is going down in Mma history. Anderson silva ended up breaking his leg on a kick he landed on his opponent. A classic mistake was made here which is taught to all fighters indulging in powerful kicks - which Anderson either didn't know due to his lack of training in striking techniques or he miscalculated in the heat of them moment : when landing a powerful kick, the kick needs to be delivered from the hip, opening it up so as to not land the kick with the flat part of the shin bone which has a higher probability of snapping. This difference in kicking technique often isn't taught overtly in martial art forms that use kicks for 'points' instead of using them for knockouts. "
