I can find plenty of examples on YouTube of people with bad elbow dislocations who fought again, and pretty soon. For example:
I've also seen it happen personally a couple of times from a post-out-of-a-fall one rather than armbar ones.
Can you give me an example of any well known combat athlete whose career was ended by an elbow dislocation? Or even an anecdote from your own experience?
Miesha has said on Twitter that she already has 80% movement.
Anyone who trains MMA is extremely familiar with armbars. They are a basic submission, taught early and consistently just as in Judo. Tate got hurt because she is stubborn, not because she is unaware that there is such a thing as a submission or is unfamiliar with the notion of tapping.Quote:
The last issue is the question were both of these women poorly coached? I belive there was not alot of coaching at would have helped these girls win but they could have stayed safe if they were more familar with arm bars.
