if you guys watched ufc 264 last night mcgregor versus poirier 3 you may have been just as confused as me about the result or the finish of the fight but today i have some more details about what went down and we are going to discuss exactly what conor mcgregor's injury was when he got it and how it could have been avoided all right guys mcgregor's lower left leg
00:34
gives out at the end of the first round or at least that's what it looks like it looks like something happened he stepped down it folds over and you're going oh did he roll his ankle but then when they zoom in and they take him out you're going ooh that looks a lot worse than a really bad rolled ankle but this morning i saw in the post fight press conference that dana white confirmed it was the lower tibia that actually got injured that is actually the shin bone and now that makes three fighters that have gone down three big fighters that have gone down
01:04
from tibia injuries we had anderson silva and then ironically chris weidman and now we have conor mcgregor and when chris weidman ended up hurting his shin pretty recently a lot of people were asking me to do another video a follow-up video to the one i did about anderson silver breaking a shin i didn't get around to it so today we'll sort of cover all of these in one go but mostly focusing on conor mcgregor and what went wrong because this is a very uncommon injury and i don't want a lot of people going into fights thinking oh shoot my shin might get broken that never
01:35
occurs to me it's something that i'm not even thinking about in terms of all the injuries that could happen so first let's talk about when this actually went down when did conor actually injure his lower tibia because he fights the whole fight a lot of it from his back once dustin poirier gets him down he gets up at the very end of the round and then he goes down but i don't remember him throwing any kicks there so i went back i looked and the only kick i could find in that first round that looks like it might have potentially hurt him like conor mcgregor actually comes in
02:06
and he throws a kick it's almost in the first 10 seconds then he fights the whole rest of the round without being injured and you might be going well that's not possible he would have kicked at the first 10 seconds gone down then but keep in mind guys that when that adrenaline rush is just pumping through you he could have really really damaged it and then just at the end of the fight with that little step down that little fold over then the tibia really gave out i've had fights where i've come in and just blasted my shin into a knee and i go oh that's going to hurt later but in the moment
02:37
it doesn't hurt so it's very realistic that conor could have hurt himself in the first 10 seconds done the rest of the round maybe if he wouldn't have been on his back it would have given out earlier but if we look in depth at this kick we see dustin poirier lean his weight slightly into that low kick and then point both fingers at connor like yeah you just kicked my knee i got you there and in the interviews at the end of the fight poiret was saying that he got kicked in the knee and he told conor that he recognized that he was definitely right it did happen it was just so early in the fight
03:08
that i didn't even remember it by the time we got to the end let's talk about what conor did wrong what could have been avoided to make sure this didn't happen or what you guys can avoid to make sure this doesn't happen and the first thing that is just a big mistake is targeting right around the knee when we target the leg with a low kick we want to be coming if you're thinking calf kick we either want to come down here or we actually want to come into the thigh but targeting right around the knee that's a gutsy move because yes there's a very tender area
03:39
up here and a very tender area on the lower thigh both of which don't get a lot of conditioning but it does not take much for the opponent as we saw dustin poirier do it doesn't take much for him to see the low kick coming and just turn just very slightly into that kick now when conor mcgregor kicks dustin poury his weight's dropped down he's flared his knee out very slightly and this is the perfect method for dealing with calf kicks especially if you're trying to go upper calf and then it ends up just equally and kicking the knee so if you guys are thinking that you want to be
04:10
a low kicker that's very important to your overall game i would suggest targeting the thigh or going very very low on the lower calf to avoid that knee that's mistake number one mistake number two is not doing a setup if i am standing in front of my opponent and i kick like conor did he actually did a little skip he lifted his lead leg and then goes into the kick which is even slower than just blasting it out so it's a little bit of a tell but if you jump in with no punch all the guy sees coming is the low kick you didn't blind him at all so if conor
04:41
would have been here and maybe stuck his hand out and then gone into the switch maybe poiret would not have been able to drop his weight in maybe he just would have taken it and buckled out a little bit and then we would not have had that injury when you guys throw your low kicks don't not every time it's not like every time you have to set it up but very often try to get a fake try to let your hands go try to twitch just a little twitch fake and then come in with the low kick you have more likelihood of not damaging your leg on their knee when you take that
05:11
attention away from the low kick draw their energy upwards draw that focus upwards towards the head for a split second then chop down low and be very aware of which portion of your foot you're kicking with or which portion of your leg when connor came in it looked like he was kicking right in here and that's going to be a danger area if i can come up a little higher on the shin there's more likely there's good support and i know a lot of people say don't kick with the foot but i don't have a trouble kicking with the foot i find that right in there right in the meaty part of the foot is
05:42
fine as soon as i come up to the instep i feel like there's instability right in there right on that middle portion there's instability there and the lower shin is probably going to be a little more compromised a little weaker than the upper shin so if i am throwing i personally would go either foot which is fine if you're going up to the the thigh or even down to the calf or if i'm really trying to demolish this leg i get a little deeper and i get my upper shin into that thigh which is really going to give that charlie horse effect and break down that thigh quickly
06:13
there's no question guys unfortunate ending to what was shaping up to be a very exciting second round would conor have been able to come back and get the win after getting a little bit of a beat down in that first round i really don't know i wouldn't count him out in the first minute but overall i'd say it was going in poury's favor anyway i would just like to see fighters in the future be a little more cautious about targeting the calf i know it's been an area of success for many people but we've now seen multiple fighters damage that shin bone that tibia
06:43
by targeting tulo and taking a knee or kicking the knee it's a very dangerous area i don't think it's something that i will ever really try to execute in my fight unless i'm going very low or i'm being very very aware that the guy cannot turn his knee into the calf kick because that is the way you're going to defend it it's a terrible way if i throw the kick and the guy turns his foot out and flexes it's just like you're kicking a steel pole now and i like conor's overall game plan right from the get-go get those spinning kicks going try and
07:14
establish some distance but going with the low kicks without the setup is very dangerous and unfortunately he paid the price hope he recovers quickly you know he's not my favorite fighter by any means but he's done so much for mma and i would like to see him back in there would i like to see poirier versus mcgregor number four i don't know if it's absolutely necessary of course i would watch it but there are other fights i'd rather see before that i think for conor maybe it's time to take a step back he's been fighting the top top level guys maybe now he can take a step back
07:44
just drop down just a little level and maybe go back to fighting diaz or some of the guys who aren't quite just in that top top three or that title to contention guys i mean maybe for him it's just time to reset and take some big money fights with some guys that he can actually beat and then maybe go after poiret again down the road but still i know a lot of people like to hate bond fighters after they have an unfortunate incident like this connor you have to remember has done so well i think he should probably return to featherweight if he really wants to chase a title again that would be the right move for him it might be hard for
08:15
his body massive weight cut but if i was one of conor mcgregor's coaches then i went what's your goal is it to get a belt again and he goes yes i'd go okay you know what let's get back to featherweight let's win one or two fights go after that title and then retire that would be the perfect move for him in my opinion anyway guys i hope you enjoyed the breakdown of what happened in the main event at ufc 264. there was some confusion there when the fight finished i was like did he roll his ankle i don't even know so i hope that cleared it up and i hope you learned something today about throwing calf kicks or targeting
08:45
