    In the post fight presser Dana talked about the submission and kept referencing Tony’s ankle, he said “ it was swollen like a golf ball after the sub attempt..
    Dariush kept talking about Tony’s knee popping. Which is most impacted by the heel hook, and why the conflicting info?

    Don't most of our ankles look like golf balls though? Lol

    Dana said it was the ankle, while Benny said he felt the knee pop. While all of that might be true, Tony is a straight up badass for never tapping to that or the Olivera arm bar.

    Both. You're your literally twisting a guys heel which pops the ankle and shreds the knee in the process.

    Guys do you expect Tony to even continue fighting this year? Have we heard from Tony post fight? I hope he is OK.

    That heel hook was so tight, I hear Conor tapped while watching it in Dubai.

    I LOLed when Dariush referred to Tony as a "zombie" for not tapping.

    the ligament that runs from your knee down to your ankle is what tears

    whether ACL, MCL or both

    Heel hooks primarily attack the knee. The ankle can be affected as well but that isn't what is being targeted with the submission, when it's applied correctly. With an inverted heel hook, it's basically all on the knee. It's more devastating than a standard heel hook and can shred the knee ligaments.

    In the vast majority of subs like that, it's the knee that gets destroyed. Just lift your leg and move your foot, you'll see that your ankle can move in a lot more different ways than your knee.

    I'm pretty sure that there's no such ligament in the human body.

    ok it doesnt actually run down, its connected to the fibula, which is the leg bone going down to the ankle
