Silva's Second Freakish Loss to Weidman

Wow, that was awful.

Both losses look a lot like flukes. It's too bad that we didn't get to see a full fight in which Silva was taking Weidman seriously, and it's really gut-wrenching that Silva's career will end like this. Weidman looks good, and he seems like a great guy. Of course he'll never be an Anderson Silva--who has a strong claim to being the GOAT--but he'll be interesting to watch. it seems that some people are asserting that the was good technique rather than luck...meh...seems very unlikely to me. Leg checks are perfectly legitimate techniques, of course, and Weidman might have reasonably aimed to minimize the effectiveness of Silva's leg kicks...but a broken leg is a fluke almost no matter how you look at it. (And I say this as someone who's not a fan of round kicks...)
