    Early in round one.

    Cejudo actually set him straight in the post-fight interview - It was DJs calf kicks that deadened the NERVE in his lower leg, leading to that foot flopping all over the place.

    That is a LEGIT technique that is underrated in todays MMA scope.

    Yes, I know there will be a ton of folks saying, "But he still lost" and that is true.

    BUT - I am betting we see a LOT more of these calf attacks in the coming fights.

    That shit is a debilitating offensive weapon that is underused.

    Calf kicks are fine, it's the sidekicks to the knee that get on my nerves. (oblique kicks)

    We've been seeing a lot more low leg kicks in MMA for awhile now. A lot of guys seemingly still struggling to check them and they're a safer kick to throw against a wrestler because they're harder to catch.

    Those and other similar lower leg kicks sure can be useful to the attacker and debilitating for the defender.

    The oblique kicks make me cringe.

    Especially that one and the dozens Jones landed on Rampage. Rampage said he hasn’t been able to train wrestling really since and he can’t do a lot of hard cardio even after surgery on each knee.

    That shit needs to be banned.

    This guy was trying to land punches and elbows to the calf, while standing.

    Watching those kicks give me flashbacks to when I had my knee badly hyperextended as a kid by a dog that weighed 80-90lbs running full speed. Someone threw me a football that I was running to catch. I turn, look up, catch the ball and immediately get knocked on my ass hard. My knee felt like it was destroyed, I had to get help to walk back to the house and had nagging issues with the knee for years after that.

    The worst thing is that they don't even hurt much. I got my nerve deadened from an kick, wasn't hard but managed to land just somewhere on point.

    Best thing is to start kicking with that leg rather than risk placing it down in footwork and risk injury. It recovers relatively quickly and comes back normal in minutes

    I was very surprised that no one on the commentary team realised what was going on. Chandler had the same thing in Bellator. It's not something that's never seen before yet Rogan was just going on and on about how strange it was.

    Jones throws it so casual, not breaking stride... drinking a cup of tea, while casually destroying opponents acl.

    Seen more Telegraph in a late 80s magic Johnson no look pass.

    It was a little weird that Cejudo's foot just stopped working. I don't think I've ever seen that before. It's natural for Rogan to speculate why.

    I guess with MM's tiny little legs, it's like getting stabbed with a needle

    It’s called “foot drop.” I had a herniated l5 S1 and developed a mild case. You can’t lift your foot towards the ceiling at the ankle. I started tripping a lot and had no idea why. It happened to michael chandler too. I’m pretty sure it happened in the ufc before too but I can’t remember who it happened to.
