Couture Suffers Broken Arm During UFC 74 Fight

Postby Sub-Zero » Mon Aug 27, 2007 4:32 pm

The following is an excerpt from an article on TheFightNetwork.com:

Even Superman feels it from time to time.

Following yet another feather-in-his-cap performance Saturday at UFC 74 in Las Vegas, real life superhero Randy Couture (16-8), was informed Sunday by doctors that he’d broken his arm during his third round TKO stoppage of Gabriel Gonzaga (8-2).

Couture, 44, sustained the injury Saturday blocking a Gonzaga right high kick with his left forearm, cleanly separating the ulna bone with a “nightstick fracture,” a break common in law enforcement circles. The injury placed the UFC heavyweight champion’s arm in a splint for six weeks. The appendage will not need a cast.

“It’s not displaced, so the doctors think it will reattach in about a week and a half,” said Couture.
I`m sure that as long as Fedor keeps training at the same level and with the same determination as he does now, he`ll continue to have no equals in Pride or anywhere else.

If Gonzaga didn't get a broken nose... he would've won for sure.

I dont know about that one. Gabe did his best to knock randy around and could not even before the broken nose, Randy owned him even before the hard take down and nose snapping!

True... but i'm sure that Napo wouldve been more comfortable on the ground and been able to pull off some bjj. But with a broken nose... he prob wouldnt be able to breathe if he was on his back.

Gonzaga would have got pounded out the same way.

The Zag got nothing on Couture! He got him beat even before the fight! Superior game plan!

Gonzaga is an impressive fighter. Kudos to him for possessing such power.

A cigar for Couture though. Fighting with a broken arm? What a stud.

randy's dirty boxing technique was ace, i dnt think gabe had trained much against the cage. and randy used his experience to beat him.

if gabriel would have won without a broken nose... then what would randy have done to him without a broken arm?

yeah I agree with most folks here. Randy smothered the bigger man and just grinded him down. The broken nose sure was a factor, but even before that Randy was dominant and was imposing his will. The fight was all Randy's style and there's just no beating him there.
