Sadly, Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza Won’t Be Kicking Anybody’s Ass for a While

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza may have put the entire UFC middleweight division on notice when he pounded the crap out of Yushin Okami at UFC Fight Night 28 last week, but unfortunately his career momentum has already ground to a halt. Due to an injury to his right foot, Souza has caught an 180-day medical suspension from the Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA), and must receive a doctor’s clearance in order to return to action sooner.

During his post-fight interview, Souza stated that he hurt his foot during the fight with Okami, and wasn’t able to do his traditional victory gator-crawl because of it. (Cut to: Training montage of Souza going through a painful foot-rehabilitation process, re-learning to gator-crawl little by little, until finally he’s slithering on the beach like a champ and Carl Weathers embraces him in triumph. *exhales weed smoke*)

Dear God, The Injuries Just Keep Piling Up in This Zombie/Aldo Aftermath [UPDATED w/MORE INJURIES]

If you thought the broken foot and dislocated shoulder that Jose Aldo and Chan Sung Jung respectively fought through at UFC 163 were gnarly enough, then you probably didn’t hear that Aldo was also diagnosed with kidney stones shortly after the fight. And if you think that’s bad, you have probably yet to hear the latest development — turns out, “The Korean Zombie” also suffered a fractured orbital bone during the fight, as revealed yesterday by FoxSports.com.

The “Korean Zombie” also suffered a fractured orbital bone during the loss, his manager Brian “Shug” Rhee told FOX Sports.

Orbital bone breaks are often seen in combat sports like MMA and boxing. Treatment and recovery time vary depending on severity. According to Rhee, Jung is expected to visit specialists for both his shoulder and eye by the end of the week, and should have more information about his expected prognosis then.

Yep, Bob Sapp is still a pussy.

Honestly, we can’t recall the last time two men suffered so many in-ring and delayed injuries from a single fight. Unless you consider a Brazilian gas station a “ring,” which they obviously do, so we don’t know why we just made that last statement.

Update: This is unreal. One of these two gentleman just reported *another* injury, the details of which are after the jump.

Jose Aldo’s Broken Foot Will Likely Keep Him Sidelined Until 2014


(Could be worse, I guess. / Photo by Esther Lin for MMAFighting.)

Shortly after Jose Aldo‘s latest triumph at UFC 163, the UFC featherweight champ was hit with a harsh dose of reality. X-rays have confirmed that Aldo did indeed break his right foot during his successful title defense against Chan Sung Jung, and he isn’t expected to fight again this year.

As Aldo explained following the event, the injury happened midway through the first round, when Jung checked an attempted leg-kick, and Aldo’s foot cracked against the Korean Zombie’s knee. Check out the photo above (or any of these) to see the balloon-like swelling that Aldo was dealing with for four rounds, before he ended the fight by TKO with a little help from Jung’s own gnarly shoulder-dislocation.

Injuries have not been Aldo’s friend during his reign as the UFC’s inaugural featherweight champion. Just days after receiving his belt following the WEC’s merger with the UFC, Aldo withdrew from his first UFC title defense against Josh Grispi due to a neck injury. The following year, another injury postponed Aldo’s fight against Chad Mendes. And last year, Aldo had to pull out of two scheduled title defenses, first against Erik Koch, then against Frankie Edgar.

Aldo’s inactivity has created a logjam of 145-pound contenders waiting for their shot at the title. Unfortunately, they’ll all have to wait a little longer.

Injury Report: Rousimar Palhares Broke His Foot During First Round of Lombard Fight

Can we all just pretend that Hector Lombard‘s UFC debut against Tim Boetsch didn’t happen? The heavy-handed killer we saw run down Rousimar Palhares like a frightened deer at the TUF Smashes Finale was the guy we’ve been waiting for and expecting since he jumped over to the UFC from Bellator. But there was a reason why Lombard’s dance partner looked tentative during the match — Palhares suffered ligament damage and broken bones in his foot after throwing a kick in the opening moments. Toquinho explains:

During the fight, my kick was working well. But soon in the first round, one of my kicks hit Lombard’s shin below his knee. I heard a snap, and I knew something bad happened. From that moment on, I [started] feeling my foot more and more numb and without strength to walk around the Octagon.”

An injury early into a match can take a fighter’s mind completely out of the competition — just ask Travis Browne. As Palhares struggled to process his body’s new limitations, he turned into a sitting duck for Lombard’s power punches, and now the Cuban is officially a factor in the middleweight division. Meanwhile, Palhares has now lost his last two UFC bouts by first-round stoppage, including his TKO defeat against Alan Belcher in May. Get well soon, Stump.

Gross Video of the Day: Cung Le’s Foot Makes His Nose Look Normal


(Little did Stitch know that the worst was yet to come…)

When I was growing up, I was one fearless son of a bitch. This ignorance of one’s mortality that is present in most adolescent boys, combined with a rubbery yet somehow fragile bone structure, led to horrifying injury after horrifying injury. When I was ten, my older brother shattered my collarbone reenacting The People’s Elbow that he had just seen on TV, an injury that has limited my ability to enjoy any Dwayne Johnson vehicle to this day. Two years before that, while reenacting the ending of King Kong vs. Godzilla, my skull was split open by a rock that my younger brother threw just a little too low. Add in more than a half dozen soccer-related broken toes, a dislocated knee and shoulder, and torn hamstring/broken ankle combination that made me yelp like a little bitch with every single step I took in the weeks afterward, and you have a shortened but accurate profile of the kind of damage my body has been through in the short 23 years I have been on this earth.

I’ve seen some injuries is what I’m saying.

But clearly, the various afflictions I have suffered pale in comparison to the twenty or so fighters who were scheduled to compete this summer, only to be struck down by an injury curse the likes of which this sport has yet to see. One of the men who actually managed to compete this summer was former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le, whose nose alone has seen rougher times than most multiple war veterans. After picking up his first UFC win over Patrick Cote at UFC 148, Le apparently injured his foot during some training-related exercise, and decided to videotape himself undergoing an ancient Chinese process (no, not Calgon) in order to help mend his wounded foot.

Video after the jump. For real this time
