Here's a photo from Yahoo! News:


You can definitely see the broken bone. It hasn't broken through the skin but it's definitely protruding out pretty badly and Silva's obviously not happy about it.

According to Weidman, yes, this can happen. He explained that they trained checking leg kicks and if you can block it with your knee it causes much more harm to the one kicking.

UFC 168: Ronda Rousey submits Miesha Tate in third, turns heel with handshake snub

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ufc-168...15415-mma.html

LAS VEGAS UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey lived up to her billing on Saturday, finishing Miesha Tate with her patented arm bar, but in the process became perhaps the most disliked fighter in the UFC.

Rousey went past the first round for the first time in eight pro fights, but she pummeled Tate throughout before getting the arm bar submission at 58 seconds of the third round in the co-main event of UFC 168 at the MGM Grand Garden.

The 2008 Olympic bronze medalist in judo threw Tate several times and was clearly physically dominant. She had Tate in bad positions throughout the fight, but Tate was gritty and battled her way out of several precarious situations.

Rousey, though, raised the ire of the sell-out crowd when she snubbed Tate when Tate offered to shake hands after the finish. Seconds after referee Mario Yamasaki broke them up, Tate stood up and extended her right hand to Rousey.

The two have had a long hatred of one another that was heightened during their stint coaching opposite each other on the reality series, "The Ultimate Fighter," earlier this year.

Rousey looked at Tate and walked away, refusing to shake hands. The fans responded with a thunderous series of boos. The booing was so loud that when Rousey was being interviewed by Joe Rogan in the cage after her win, it was virtually impossible to hear her speaking.

It was a classless act, but it was likely calculated to increase her status as the UFC's top heel. She's now the fighter the fans love to hate, and that will sell her a lot of pay-per-views.

So, too, will fighting aggressively throughout the bout, as she did in dominating Tate.

so its Weidmans fault



You know I think he's had a raw deal...he's been Champion for months, but everyone thought he was a fluke, and that Silva caused his own demise...now this happens...and in two weeks time when the dust is settled...this will either be an injury that has nothing to do with Weidman (thus Silva causing his own demise again) or it will be the evil Weidman who retired the best fighter in the world.

I mean...he just cant win.

Some would say it serves him right training with Matt Serra

I keep trying to think of a new guy that I can really get behind. Where are all the great personas that you used to see in these fighters and this sport? They feel so generic and interchangable.

Though it sucked to see AS lose that way I think it was rather fitting almost. He comes out and meditates faciously for 1 minute, wasting everyone's time as though only he is important, and then gets owned and ends up destroying himself and probably ending his own career.

Pride usually proceeds the fall

He's also been deemed the "Greatest Mixed Martial Artist of All Time" by the UFC and his worshipers, and yet, all time is infinite, so it's a nonsequitor to suggest that, and plus, he was "gifted" a lot of tomato cans (Luter, Cote, Thales Leites, Forrest, Bonner, Okami, Irvin, Leben) for at least half of his fights in the UFC. Then, he fights a fairly 1-dimensional Chael twice, and a washed up for the most part Hendo.

Yet, we're told he has "cleaned out the division" and is undeniably the "Greatest MMArtist of all Time".

He wasn't "gifted" anyone. That was the best talent that the UFC had that were middleweights. It is not his fault that he was that much better than all of them. At least he tried going up in weight some also. And Hendo washed up....he went to KO Fedor a couple of years later. Oh wait, but he was washed up too, right?

As for the minute meditation...Ever watch boxing? Fighters will leave their opponents in the ring for 5-10 minutes just because. What he did was not a big deal, IMO.
