Cracked Chin

So in regards to a successful comeback, what's more concerning, his leg injury or the fact that after getting dropped in back to back fights, maybe his chin has gone the way of other great striking champs of the past......
The apparent degradation of Silva's chin is the biggest concern for me. He got KO'd in the first fight by a shot that didn't look that hard. Then in the 2nd fight he got dropped by a shot that shouldn't flash KO'd him like that.

Silva might have just reached that level of accumulated damage in training where his chin starts to buckle all the time (I'm looking at you Chuck Liddell). Given that he shouldn't be in fighting shape for at least a year coming off an injury like this I hope he calls it a career.

His eyes were closed but his expression changed completely, it went from agressive to completely expressionless. He was out for a second.

The general consensus I have for your posts is I agree. I will add that to my sig.. lol

Yeah it's strange how some people keep focusing on how his leg broke instead, I can't imagine why.
