Just playing Devil's advocate a bit here but Bas also called it a freak accident. This is from his latest face book post.

When Weidman wouldn't have blocked, it would have been a good kick just above the knee and everything would have been fine. So this could have happened to anybody. Still, when a thinner flatter part hits a thicker (flatter part in this case) this can happen.
The video I posted is about blocking a right outside low kick with your left leg just under your knee
I am on MMA junky radio tomorrow morning at 9 am PT with George Garcia. I give you more examples of some fighters who do this with their right leg (when orthodox) and I a huge fan of those guys. With the inside low kick it will almost always hit the flat part of the shin bec of the angle.
