Why wasn’t Aldo able to implement Volk’s leg kick strategy against Max?

    Aldo is probably the best leg kicker in FW history. I know whenever you go for the leg kick you’re left vulnerable to a straight punch down the middle, was it a choice by Aldo to not throw it or was it something Max did to prevent it?

    Aldo hasn't thrown more than two leg kicks a round since the Zombie fight where he broke his foot

    He actually hasn't been the same since before the first Mendes fight where he got in a bad motorcycle accident that took away a lot of his explosiveness

    This is why WEC Aldo = GOAT

    Aldo and his camp have been lacking in strategy.

    First leg kick Aldo threw in the first fight with Max got countered and that was the end of that.

    Second fight Aldo had alot more success with them but Aldo taking the fight on short notice plus Holloways high pace attributed to that ending

    As far as Volk goes he was just a bit more disciplined and hid his intentions better with feints and the threat of the wrestling was there the whole time helping the leg kicks land easier without much resistance or response from Max.

    Calf kicks are changing the sport. Plus being an aging athlete I’m sure injuries prevent you from executing the same techniques.

    He destroyed lamas with leg kicks that was after the kz fight so it’s obvious the broke foot thing didn’t bother him. He just wants to be a boxer now. His style now is to just stand in front and box which is kinda sad.

    him and Barao have slowed down on leg kicks which makes me think it's a coaching thing

    Why doesn't Aldo throw leg kicks anymore is the real question.

    Injuries and the fact that Max stepped in and clocked Aldo the first time he threw a leg kick.
