Haha, yeah knowledge is power isn't it, even pros make mistakes, thats why you don't get too reckless with low kicks when you're opponent is quite good at checking leg-kicks.

That is horrible indeed.

Yeah you wouldnt wish that to happen to any of these athletes indeed. Weidman checked that kick with the thickest spot of the leg, just below the knee + Silva had careless/poor kicking technique there, didnt turn his hip into the kick = snapped leg :(. But leg kicks are good tactic, especially if you are against a bigger and slower opponent. Just dont get too reckless/carefree like Silva here...

The best thing about this video, is the fact that rick's brother (the salty guy at the end), is now on of the most renowned striking coaches in US- MMA, who teaches Muay thai techniques.

History teaches.

That's how MMA was born, thanks to all the collective combat knowledge that was passed on through generations of pioneers in different combat disciplines who pitted their styles against each other.

This was one of these pivotal events.

Aye indeed, we can thank the early pioneers that made the MMA scene today happen. Like Gracie family etc. Or one of my favourite fighters Bas Rutten from Pancrase. Very humble guy, but formidable striker and becoming good grappler after losing to Ken Shamrock on the ground game. Also Bas is pretty gd commentator + funny.

Who doesn't like the king of pancrase  maybe Dana white), one of coolest.

Oh yes of course many many influences, the Gracie's , valetudo, shoot boxing, pancrase, shooto, pride FC, k-1, UFC..etc. 

It is great to see MMA as sport evolve over the years with new blood, despite the fall of past legends, one by one, but that's life.

while I appreciate grappling, I always had more passion/fascination with striking combat sports (K-1 back then) even older and newer generation of MMA strikers, and some epic glory now.
