So It Turns Out Rick Story Derailed the Gunnar Nelson Hype Train With a Broken Ankle


(Well, that’s a little different than how I would’ve played it.)

The only thing more surprising than Rick Story’s five round routing of Icelandic prospect Gunnar Nelson at Fight Night 53 last weekend was probably the fact that one of the judges actually awarded the fight to Nelson — and by “surprising” I of course mean “in line with everything we’ve come to expect about the state of MMA judging.” But today (yesterday), a truly surprising fact of the fight was dropped by Story via Twitter.

As it turns out, not only was Story able to temporary derail the “Gunni” hype train while fighting on foreign soil, but he was able to do so with a broken ankle to boot. Sounds like a real “Horror” story, amiright fellas? (*crickets*)

According to Story, he suffered the brutal injury to his left ankle in the second round of the five round main event, and is unsure of whether or not it would require surgery or what his return timetable would be. Let’s hope his entrance into the top 15 of his division (at #12) will provide him some comfort in these trying times.

As for Nelson, well, expect him to chalk this loss up as a learning experience and come back in even more robotic┬ádominant fashion than ever before. Remember, Story scored a unanimous decision over some guy named Johny Hendricks not too long ago, and we hear he’s doing pretty well these days.
