    I catch up with James Krause after he beat Jamie Varner at UFC 173. He talks about the win and the technique which caused the injury to Varner. He also discusses possible future opponents - Green, Ferguson, Chiesa, Castillo and Lauzon.

    It is his merit imo. Obviously nobody expects to break someone else's ankle with a kick, but the kick still did it. It's kinda like Weidman vs Anderson 2 situation.
    He was looking very good even before the kick. Weirdly enough Varner had some good moments after the broken ankle.

    Wasn't the kick that broke his ankle the very first strike he threw? Can't really say if he was looking good or not up until that point, can you?

    I don't know if it was the first strike, but it may have been the first kick he threw that did it.

    krause is starting to put it together. he came out of nowhere to outpoint stout for two rounds and then submit him in the 3rd. that was impressive. he was in a war against green until the accidental low blows ended it prematurely. i would of liked to see if green could keep that pace up.

    the varner fight is a wash. both were just getting started when the injury took place. to krause's credit, it was his technique that caused the injury. too bad that's a loss on varner's record though.

    krause has come a long way. i'm rooting for him.

    Did the kick really break his ankle? It looked like he landed wrong and rolled his ankle. Of course I could be wrong though.

    Something I think a lot of people don't understand is that after a shot (and in Krause's case, 2 shots) to the nuts, any kind of blow to the abdomen makes your balls hurt, too.

    I don't think it was a good call, and even if the foot was high enough like McCarthy said, you can't blame Krause for feeling like he got kicked in the nuts.... again.

    I don't think the kick actually broke his ankle, but it did hurt it and caused it to give in and break eventually

    The kick itself didn't break anything. Krause kicked the calf and Jamie rolled his ankle when he tried to plant his foot down. You can clearly see when it snaps as, Jamie tries to put too much weight on it while it's already rolled underneath him. Ugly shit.

    The kick itself didn't break the ankle. After checking the kick, Jamie put his foot down the wrong way that's why it broke

    ^This. You can clearly see this in the slow motion replays they showed after the fight
