After Seeing Silva’s Leg Break Jon Jones Will Still Throw Leg Kicks
Anderson Silva’s broken leg was about as cringe-worthy as anything we have ever seen in the history of MMA. The current UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman checked an inside leg kick from Silva, causing a brutal break on Silva’s left leg.
The break sent waves through the MMA community, with many analysts and other fighters sharing their thoughts on the situation.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones had his own take on the situation when he tweeted this.
No Anderson's last fight will not change my psychology towards kicking at all, that was just an extremely unfortunate situation

Many have often thought what happened to Silva could occur to the current light heavyweight kingpin, if only due to his thin frame which earned him the nickname “Bones.”
He apparently will not change his style, so let’s hope it doesn’t happen to him as well.
