    Randy won with one broken arm!

    COUTURE BREAKS ARM

    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, who embarks on a South African adventure to shoot a leading role in major motion picture “The Scorpion King – The Akkadian” in nearly six weeks. It is believed the injury will not effect Couture’s shooting schedule.

    To watch Couture's reaction of his bout and for a re-cap of all the fights, check out The Fight Network's original series "After The Bell" in the homepage's video player.

    Ha! that's the exact same break I got a couple years ago fighting Muay Thai. You gotta block those kicks with your palm in. Luckily it sounds like he has better medical care.

      And I thought Gonzaga's kick looked weak. Ouch.

        That should make clear that Randy is a tough motherfucker and, most importantly, Gonzaga's kicks are not the result of him being lucky.

          And... that Randy is an even bigger badass.

          ...and, that maybe, just maybe, had Gonzo's nose not been squashed, he would have taken advantage of the damage he made further down the line. Heh.

          I think Gonzaga's really gonna learn from this. Perhaps one day we shall say a Gonzaga vs. Couture 2.

            hmmmm....this nullifies the broken nose argument in my book. What's harder...fighting with a broken nose, or trying to secure a take down with a broken arm...

                edit Let me revise my statment. A broken anything is a bitch and for them to keep fighting says a lot about both men.

                  This just shows how much of a badass Randy is.

                  A lot of people have been saying that if Gonzaga hadnt had a broken nose he would have done better.

                  Well, now we can add to the discussion, that if Randy hadnt had a broken arm his jab would have staid as strong as it was in that first punch.

                      Gonzaga would have done better. I've broken my nose before and I was done. I couldn't breath, I couldn't see, I had the worst migraine; touching my nose was agony.

                      But we could go on with the "what if's" all day.

                        Damn, I didn't know Randy broke his arm. Pretty amazing that he still won.
                        Seems like adrenaline does a lot for these guys, I remember Tim Sylvia getting his arm broken, and he didn't feel a thing.

                          I dont know if even Randy's Nuts are big enough for all those that will be hanging off there.

                              ouch! (I also got my forearm broken (same type of fracture) in a kyokushin tournament about 5 months ago and I'm still not at a 100%)
