I don't understand, why didn't Lim check those leg kicks?

Didn't he see Weidman vs Anderson?

People saw Weidman vs Anderson II and now all of a sudden think checking leg kicks is some new next level shit that will change the entire game

Tarec actually throws leg kicks with proper technique, so it wouldn't have had the same horrible effect as Anderson's, anyway.

after 20+ years of muay thai, anderson silva doesn't throw leg kicks with proper technique now.

Tarec set up his leg kicks when Lim was coming forward - or with strikes.
Plus, Lim is doesn't seem to have good kickboxing technique anyways - he is more of a brawler.

He knew he was fighting a leg kicker yet it looks like he didn't even check one leg kick in his training camp, even after what happened in the Weidman - Silva fight. Wtf Lim coaches?

No, at least not in that fight he wasn't. I assume it's because if he were to throw them the 'correct' way, he would've left himself more open for the takedown.

It's easier said than done.


Also, he avoided and countered plenty of the leg kicks.

Just Tarec was mixing up too well and landed more than Lim could defend.

He was probably looking to counter and wanted to sit down on his punches

This x1000

I'm honestly baffled that people don't know how rare that is.
