EFC Africa Light Heavyweight Champ sustains skull fracture, goes on to win fight.
The price of victory was high. During the bout, Joubert suffered a depression fracture to his skull, yet still managed to fight on and ultimately win. Health permitting, he hopes to be back to defend his title soon.
ďIím still waiting to hear the final doctorís verdict but it looks like I have surgery to look forward to, and itís not a small procedure. The fracture was definitely from the elbows that I took, and in my opinion elbows should be banned from MMA. I canít train for at least 6 weeks and itíll be a few months before my skull heals properly. Was it worth it? All I can say is MMA is in my blood, itís the sport I chose and I want to continue.Ē"
I haven't seen the fight yet, but I've been following the buildup on Facebook and I know there was some bad blood between these gentlemen. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
