    Obviously you have leg checks that snap the shin bone. But I wonder if the likes of Rockhold & AKA are doing stupid things throwing too many kicks in training and hurting their back.

    the back is very prone to getting fucked the older you get

    that black beast belly doesn't help either.

    Back injuries are the absolute worst but the simplest of things can help prevent back injuries like 10 minutes of stretching before anything physical. I learned the hard way- 4 herniated discs cause I was a madman and unintelligent as I showed up and just went at it.

    Judging by BBs physique, hes probably had discular problems well before fightimg.

    It's possible, especially if you're nearly 300 lbs and trying to fight like Pettis... I doubt his back was hurt going in to the fight. "I injured my back so I'm going to throw 10x as many kicks as I normally do" Wouldn't make sense lol.
