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…
