You see, it’s not the kick or even the broken leg itself that gets me, and trust me when I say, those moments in this video induce groans like I’ve never seen a shatterd leg in an MMA fight before (even if it’s old hat now). The really horrific moment is when he steps back, you know he’s hurt, but then his leg crumbles into a pile of flesh and bone like a Jenga set created by Satan.
I don’t want to look, but I can’t look away. Leg kick thrown, *crack*, step back, crumble. Ohhhhhh. I’ve watched it 4 times and I’m ready for more. The human body is so strong and yet so fragile… Sorry, I’m still reeling from the BJ Penn loss last night and it’s making me read plenty of Nietzsche.
It’s also pretty weird that this guy is wearing yellow shorts just like Anderson Silva. Could there be a curse of the yellow shorts? Probably not, but fighters should probably be aware.
