    What happened? I haven't seen him throw a leg kick in a while. Anyone know why? Injury, gameplan, stamina?

    He was in a motorcycle accident years ago, and many fans have noticed that since the accident he’s not thrown many leg kicks.

    Probably has an injury that never healed. It's a shame, since it was a big part of his game

    His lowkick being a super weapon is a Rogan myth

    Has to be some kind of injury. I didn't know about the motorcycle accident I always figured it was just some kind of injury like a broken foot or something.

    Hmm the articles I found from 2012 say that Aldo emerged from the motorcycle accident uninjured.

    So faber took like 500 lowkick without quiting. What other fight?

    Its the complete toolkit and fight iq that make Aldo great. Not his lowkick

    His low kick was one of his most effective weapons and he hasn't utilized it in years. Sure he's a complete fighter but not being able to use one of your best weapons definitely hinders you a lot.

    Here’s a gif of Ricardo lamas

    He tore up Florian with leg kicks too, which if I remember correctly; was a large reason a lot of people thought McGregor would struggle with Aldo. Because they both use a similar wide stance that’s vulnerable to leg kicks.

    He did use a knee heavy gameplan vs Frankie and it worked.

    Maybe its just related to the opponents he is facing?
