    I'm happy for AS, let's hope for a speedy recovery, and if he wants to, a return to the cage.

    Not the question I meant to ask, Do you think that if the break wasn't so initially obvious, would Chris be getting more recognition as a solid win and not "because Anderson broke his leg"? I kinda got the feeling that people's reaction to the break is taking away from the fact that Chris was putting on a solid performance.

    The Edit: and yes it's MMA, and yes MMA is friggin awesome. One might say it even kicks ass. Much, much pun intended.

    exactly.

    In my most humbliest of humble opinions, I thought Chris took that first round, not easily, but a solid 10 - 9. Up and until the "kick heard/seen around the world" I thought it was going the same way. In the resulting media, I've gotten the impression that Chris isn't getting the amount of credit he deserves, again in my opinion. The question I have is do you all think that if the break wasn't so grotesque, would Chris be getting more credit for a solid win?

    Good thing you're not that cruel, or you'd be setting karma up to break your girl ronda's neck. she's got more arrogance in her false eyelashes than Anderson has in his whole body...not to mention he had far more reason to be proud than she did.

    The more you type, the less intelligent you appear.

    Watch 10 fighters checking leg kicks passively, then watch the Weidman fight again.

    Then get back to us.

    Are you comparing seagal to ray longo?!? He practiced turning his knee in to check Silvas kick with it. He practiced checking leg kicks with his knee. He practiced kneeing someone in the shin when they tried to kick him. It's a specialized technique. Hell just a regular leg kick check is a technique.
