[VIDEO] Check Out This HORRIFIC Arm Break From a Polish MMA Fight

(Jesus, it’s like that time I asked Cris Cyborg to give me a Dutch Rudder all over again.)

From the time Corey Hill nearly kicked his own foot off to Frank Mir’s arm-shattering kimura on Big Nog to whatever the f*ck this is supposed to be, it would be safe to say that us MMA fans have been privy to some absolutely horrendous bone breaks over the years. Yet no matter how gruesome the injury is, we continuously find ourselves drawn toward them, replaying the nasty injuries on a loop like a white chick with a zit-popping compilation.

In Poland last weekend, we were treated to another real doozy of an arm break on the HFO 2 Kunlun Elimination 2016 undercard. During a match between two unnamed amateurs, the fellow in the blue-taped gloves above attempted to counter a Harai Goshi throw by placing his arm on the mat. A quick reminder: NEVER, EVER TRY THIS.

Gross Injury of the Day: Rony Jason Snaps Gasparzinho’s Arm on ‘TUF Brazil’ [VIDEO]

(The ouchie comes at the 1:56 mark.)

In case you haven’t been keeping up with The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil — and sure, I’m one of those people — Team Wanderlei finally got its first victory on Sunday’s episode, after losing the first five quarterfinal matches to Team Vitor. Featherweight Rony “Jason” Mariano Bezerra put the Axe-Murderers on the board with a first-round submission win over Anistavio “Gasparzinho” Medeiros de Figueiredo, who proved why it’s rarely a good idea to slam your way out of an armbar. Jason will now meet Hugo “Wolverine” Viana in the featherweight semis.

The arm-snappage led to a shouting match between the coaches, which you can check out after the jump. If you understand Portuguese, please enlighten us with a summary…


Technical Submission Video of the Day: Kimura’s a Bitch

VidProps: dwn4lf/YouTube
Member of the Potato Nation Bryce M. sent us this video of competition at BreakThroughMMA down in Daytona Beach, Florida, where two guys with long, slim builds fight over ownership of an arm. The guy in the black vale tudo shorts is Aaron “Avatar” Strawmier, who wishes to claim the arm from his opponent, Jonathan Riffle. Riffle hopes to maintain custodial custody of the arm in question.

If you interested in the whole fight (featuring commentary by Seth Petruzelli), you can watch it here, but this is the boiled-down essence of the fight. Strawmier wants Riffle to tap, Riffle does not want to tap. Strawmier encourages him strongly to tap, but Riffle does not. Strawmier increases the torque on Riffle’s arm, and Bob’s your uncle: Strawmier claims victory and ownership of Riffle’s appendage at the same time with a simple snap.

Actually, not so simple snap: Bryce reports that Riffle suffered a spiral fracture, which is never fun. Props to both guys for playing it cool after the injury. Hey Strawmier, have you sent your info in yet for the Proving Ground? There’s nothing like a Shinya Aoki-style highlight to put fear in your future opponents…
