Viewer Discretion needed.

Many many "reasons" why this happened, even Bas Rutten has said its due to him kicking wrong

What are your thoughts on this?

For me its Career End, once fit to concentrate on training NEW champs into the Cage of UFC etc
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.

Bas Rutten does seem to have a point in the video. In Silva's situation that is not the case. His leg was facing into his opponent' s leg. Look at the video.

My guess for the break is that he stuck his opponent near the knee. Where his opponent's leg will be thicker and denser because of muscle and tendon attachments. Your bones are denser where there are muscle attachments. Silva also struck with a part of his leg where there is probably less density because there aren't muscle attachments there.

For me the angle is wrong. Bone on bone less denser bone gives.

That's why missile catching blocks are a no no.. Anyway I am not certain that this is a career end but I it isn't very unlikely. The man is 38 years old, even if he fully recovers after the operations and so on he will lose a solid year if not more from training time + possible psychological effects and the question of how useable will that leg be in the future.

Not the kind of end I would however wish for such a fighter.
