Some are arguing that Chris Weidman's check of Anderson Silva's leg kick, which caused the former champ to suffer a brutal leg fracture, was a "dirty technique." BE's striking specialist Connor Ruebusch weighs in.

Dirty? That leg check was as clean as my abs...

The only thing dirty was Vitor's breath during that heart felt rant about himself afterwards.

Jay, can you explain the power cocks tab on your computer's screen shot? That's what caught my attention

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I agree completely, and that's pretty much what the article is trying to prove.

Weidman's defense was perfect, anyone saying that it was dirty is pure sour grapes.

Weidman's leg checks where clean for sure. It's the same thing when someone trys punching you in the face. You try and get out of the way or block it. Now if someone
broke their hand on someone else elbow our forehead or whatever there would be nothing wrong with that. It would be unfortunate just like this injury to Anderson is unfortunate.
The thing that sucks the most is there isn't much closure to this fight. And I'm not trying to take anything away from Weidman because of course he won the first round no question.
But in any fight that ends in that fashion or close to that sucks for both fighters. It sucks for Anderson for the obvious reasons and the fact he didn't really get the full opportunity to avenge his only UFC loss.
It sucks for Weidman too. Lots of people doubted Weidman, Except for Teh Kingsmasher of course. The first one many considered a fluke and the second one ends like this.
I would have rather this fight end any other way for either fighter than how it did.

It was a little bit in poor taste by Weidman and his corner to jump around like that. When Hester/Andrews recently fought and it ended by injury default Hester was not celebrating.
I'm sure he was happy to win but he was genuinely unhappy that the fight ended that way and would have much rather have preferred to get a Ko or Decision.

Same thing in a pool match if any of you guys shoot tournaments or league. It's cool to celebrate after winning a match but you don't carry on if your opponent scratches on the 8-ball. It's just one of those unwritten rules.

ridiculous, a leg check is a defensive move, how can it possibly be dirty. Silva broke his leg on Weidman, not Weidman broke Silva's leg.
