    You would think someone, somewhere, would have caught it on video if she had in fact hit her on the spine. But I'm confused, Toughill elbow'd someone on the spine? Is she in one of the above pictures? Very confusing.

    It sounds unlikely that an elbow strike could break the spine unless the spine were already wedged and flexed.

    Is she paralyzed? Maybe Kyle Maynard can finally live his dream of fighting somebody in an MMA match!

    Won't let me see it, and I logged in. Maybe you have to be a Pro level or whatever they call it.

    Why was she DQ'ed? Is it against the rules to strike the spine? How on earth do they enforce that?

    So did Toughill actually strike the spine or not, according to the video evidence?

    We clearly don't have all the facts, but I couldn't find anything, anywhere saying Yabushita was injured seriously.

    Toughill's response says both fighters were using illegal tatics and things got out of hand.

    It likely this all started when someone mistranslated the Japanese word for "back", as "spine" and other people took off with it.

    That sounds like a plausible explanation since it seems unlikely a spine would be snapped by a standing strike under those circumstances.
