The kick that broke Conor McGregor’s leg (Dustin’s elbow) last night.

Bas thinks it was the kick, but who knows? Probably a combination of all of it. ???

OK, so they asked me what I thought about the fight between Conor and Dustin and if a “check” caused the whole problem.
Poirier said that he checked a kick, and that he felt that something happened, that he even was pointing at McGregor to let him know he hurt himself.
Well, these pics are from the beginning of the fight, the second pic shows Poirier pointing at Conor's leg, like: "You hurt yourself".
Conor kicks, Dustin lifts his leg a little bit, just enough for Conor to connect to the side of his knee (in stat of the meaty part just above the knee), which, if you feel yourself on the outside of you knee, there is a thick bone.
Now, on the pic where he kicks you can see his calf muscle hanging down, meaning, it was relaxed, this means, he didn’t flex his leg when he kicked, that means the ankle is completely relaxed and with that power, (because he was kicking hard), a relaxed ankle hitting a thick bone? That could have started the whole thing, it probably got fractured there, then some more kicks, and the fracture gets a little bigger every time.
And at a certain time, the ankle goes: “screw it, I am out”.
Now, NOTHING else happened to the ankle during this fight, so I believe this could have been the only reason, then again, I am not a doctor. I just speak from an experience I had, this one….
One time I was fighting in Japan and the day before the fight I saw a video of a fight where a guy was sitting in half guard, grabbing his opponent’s ankle, fell back and applied an inverted heel hook.
I am looking at Jon Bluming who was with me (the highest Black belt degree holder, 10th degree, in Kyokushin Karate next to Mas Oyama, the founder), and I told him, (since I had not a lot of grappling experience yet), “That’s a cool move, I should remember this”.
Next day I am in the fight and what do you know? I am in that position, so I figured to try it out?
Now because I never did it before, I had no clue what amount of pressure I was putting on this fighters’ knee, I fell back, heard a pop, let go immediately.
The ref heard the pop as well, but the fighter gets up, feels his knee (because 90% of the time it’s the knee that pops), tells the ref: “I am OK”? The ref and myself are looking like “What the heck? We heard it pop”?
Well, what we didn’t know was that it was his shinbone that we heard crack, it was cracked now, but not completely broken yet
So the ref restarts the fight, my opponent moves around, he kicks me, I let him miss, I give him hard inside low kick, he counters with left inside low kick (the same leg I put the inverted heel hook on), I just take the kick, well, this is where his shin completely breaks, after the kick he puts his foot down and you see the lower leg bend outside. Not a fun thing to watch.
What I am saying is that, after we heard the crack, he was moving around, I kicked him and he kicked me back and at that moment it broke.
So this could have been easily the same deal, again, when you don’t flex your leg when kicking and you hit a hard/solid object with a relaxed muscle, (ankle in this case), this can very easily happen.
It’s like hitting somebody while not squeezing your hand into a fist, when you hit a skull with a relaxed hand, you can easily break your hand.
Those are my two cents, and, since I didn’t see anything else happen to the ankle, I assume it was this what started the whole ordeal. But I have been wrong many times before….

Ah thanks for the rules explanation.

And Damn so that seemingly innocuous elbow may have started it or at least continued after the training issue.

No wonder there is “elbow energy” lol. But really. Bumping into an elbow or the corner of furniture already hurts. Can’t imagine kicking the elbow like that feels good.

The second JPG in the first post pretty much sums up my thoughts on Conor McGregor at this point.

Did you see him after the fight, laying on the cage floor with his crooked foot, still talking shit?

The mind boggles.

:) Yeah, if it wasn't for his mouth. But, I think it's more the bravado of insecurity. The more he does it, the more he dreads losing; so, he goes into denial.
