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.
