Ouch. Brazilian MMA competitor Gustavo Franca threw a leg kick that Magno Alexandre checked perfectly, snapping Franca's shin bone. The two met at tonight's Watch Out Combat 24 (WOCS 24) show
We've seen this a few times in MMA. Corey Hill. Jose Landi-Jons and many others have suffered this same misfortune. It's an occupational hazard that comes with throwing your shin at another man's leg as hard as you can. Gif by Zombie Prophet
But look at that sportsmanship folks! These guys have so much respect for each other. I've seen a few of this type of leg break but I can't recall and incident in which the injured fighter looked down and watched his leg melt out from under him before.
