I'd recommend working with the hands. Good physical labor gets your mind off the burned areas. But if it's been days, I just don't know at this point.

Oh so we're throwing spinning shit now?

When Anderson fights his own clone, no one will care, because Weidman beats them both.

Anderson was just not smart enough and didn't set up his kicks. He also was not conditioned enough to get away with it. Fighters in that video are top level ( I mean that's Saenchai). They are well conditioned and have been kicking heavy bags since they were 8 or 10. Their shins are developed throughout their formative years. More specifically though, they set up those kicks. Anderson telegraphed that shit a mile away, he should've also stopped when he felt his shin crack and do something else.

In short, Anderson was not smart enough and Weidman checked his telegraphed kicks. So Weidman beat him.

just because we should EXPECT an eluded strike to result in a dislocated shoulder, that doesn't mean we need to conclude that it was an extreme showing of superiority that led to the EXPECTED outcome.

again, an unassisted triple play is rare. over time it is EXPECTED! and it is usually random and not the result of something special by the fielder.

weidman deserves credit for doing what he trained to do. the result was certainly not EXPECTED by weidman. even if you EXPECTED it sometime over the next 10 years.
Your correct in one part and wrong in the other.

Yes in the world of randomness and anything can happen lots of shit will happen that really is random and not really a part or expected consequence of the actions the fighters are taking.

A checked leg kick break or broken orbital or cheek bone in a fight does not fall into that camp.

In fact no one with knowledge of fighting would look back at the past and be shocked or surprised that we have had some broken orbitals or cheek bones or legs due to the above. THEY WOULD EXPECT IT albeit rarely and in small percentages. No one knowledgeable of fighting would look at the future and be shocked or surprised that we will have MORE broken orbitals or cheek bones or legs due to the above. THEY WOULD EXPECT IT albeit rarely and in small percentages.

it is an EXPECTED OUTCOME from the actions being taken but just one of the rarer outcomes so we only EXPECT to see it happen in small percentages.
