    - A roundhouse kicks at B's leg.
    - A's leg gets broken.

    Who's fault is this? Your thought?

    Fault? I seriously doubt he was intentionally trying to kick the guy in the knee. The other fighter did nothing to Make him kick there so, if you have to lay "blame", it was the kickers fault.

    Freak accidents don't have to be someone's "fault."

    I'm going to say the kicker too. Conditioning and understanding ones limits is crucial. Target the kicks better and all that stuff.

    This reminds me of The art of war. Know yourself...Know your enemy.

    I have to be mindful of where I place my punches so I don't break my hands. Same with kicks. I can't just kick like I'm made of stone.

    I feel like he was going for an inner thigh kick but I am not certain. Regardless, stuff happens in the ring.

    Some things don't have a fault. Everyone just does their job, and **** goes wrong.

    yep , but in this case, it went wrong and it was his fault. Lol

    You know what I used to always used to say when I was training others. NO SHIN TO SHIN KICKS. and this is why. Man I used to get on them about doing that.

    From first glance you would assume the kickers fault right? I don't know. I think this could have been handled better. Its competition your not defending your life from an attacker. You shouldn't need to kick hard enough to break someone's leg. My regards to the other guy's recovery.

    I'd have blamed it on the kicker's mom, since she clearly didn't get him enough calcium in his diet when he was growing up.

    J/K

    Don't kick knees with shins, the F = MA equations work out all wrong against an orthogonal surface.
