Lorenzo Fertitta famously said, in so many words, that the appeal of mixed martial arts is that any moment, you will get a big oh sh*t moment, and tonight when Chris Weidman defeated Anderson Silva by injury TKO as Silva broke his leg, Twitter exploded.</span></p>

Below is a collection of tweet's from some of the sports stars, media, and biggest fans:

Dan Henderson: Man, seeing the replay of @ChrisWeidmanUFC and @SpiderAnderson @SpiderAnderson I honestly would hate to see this end his career. Best wishes

Josh Koscheck: That's a career ender. :(

Urijah Faber: Ouch!! Rough sport we're in. @ufc feel for Anderson! Congrats @ChrisWeidmanUFC

Justin Timberlake: That slow-mo replay though... I have no words. #UFC168

Justin Bucholz: Hey fellow mma fighters let's agree to quit with the leg kicks. Gentlemen's agreement. #UFC168

Kenny Florian: Sending #AndersonSilva positive thoughts on a full and speedy recovery. His legacy as one of the best ever is set in stone either way.


Dominick Cruz: Wow...That accurate of a checked kick hurts with shin guards on-no joke!

Joe Lauzon: Oh. My. God. #ufc168

Bas Rutten: Remember the post I did why you have to open your hips when you kick? Otherwise you connect with the flat part and break your shin.

Like a Bas
LOL Phone Post 3.0

Fucking Bas Rutten. I do not like that guy. and forgive me, but I never have.

What's he mean by 'open your hip'? Phone Post 3.0

At least Bas wrote it and not Kenny Rice (his number one fan).

Bas The Wolfman

Bas is da man. And Props to Benson for throwing in a like a boss.

It is so crazy that after the first Silva/Weidman fight on the MMA Hour the very.monday after the fight Ray Longo said "Weidman took way too many leg kicks, we are gonna work on that for the rematch" Phone Post 3.0

"I told you! I said this was going to happen! "
-The essence of every bas rutten quote ever.

He can say what he wants though.

Bas Rutten knows what's up.

Anthony - Bas Rutten knows what's up.

Is there gifs demonstrating this? The way Anderson does it seemed correct.

Bas Ruton AKA kuato from total recall... "open your Hips"

Duh, he did mean to do that.  Not break the leg, but check the kick.  Which he did.  A broken leg is the result of a checked kick if it's hard enough.

Amanojaku - what did Usher say?

When your feeling ain't the same and your body don't want to
But you know gotta let it go cause the party ain't jumpin' like it used to
Even though this might bruise you
Let it burn
Let it burn
Gotta let it burn
