Why did Silva's leg break the way it did??

Upon close inspection, you can see that the break happened at least an inch below the actually impact point.

Could it be that Silva's shin was already shattered at a slightly lower part after the first check and it was actually the impulse from the second check, rather than the head-on collision, that caused the actually dislocation?

Or am I missing something?

Weidman checked the kick with his Knee. In the first round that technique cracked Silva's shin. The second Knee check snapped the shin in half.

I think the leg broke pretty much where the knee hit it and then the centrifugal force of the kick made the lower part of the broken leg start wrapping around Weidman's leg. I think it's basic physics.

100% correct and the knee leg kick check was on purpose according to the press conference after the fight. You can even see it in that picture TS posted

the .gif makes it look like the force behind anderson's kick was what broke his leg, not the actual impact because the break appears to happen below where weidman's knee is.
