UFC 115 Injury Report: Franklin’s Arm, Liddell’s Face, Barry’s Hand/Foot, Cro Cop’s Ham

Chuck Liddell may have lost his ability to take a punch, but he still had enough offensive firepower at UFC 115 to break Rich Franklin‘s arm with the first body kick he threw. Following their meeting on Saturday night, Ace confirmed that he broke his left ulna during the fight, and would be in a cast for at least eight weeks. As the former UFC middleweight champ told reporters at the post-fight press conference:

"I definitely wasn’t going to quit — I’ve broken bones before and continued fighting — but there was part of me that was wondering what kind of strategy I was going to use to win the fight with a broken left arm in the second and third rounds." 

…proving once again that knocking your opponent out early is always the best gameplan. (Are you listening, Pat?) Liddell woke up from his knockout with a horribly split lip and a gash over his left eye, but that didn’t stop him from making an appearance at his afterparty. A photographic timeline of Chuck’s night continues after the jump.

– Besides his fanboy-like love of the Croatian legend, there’s a reason Pat Barry looked increasingly ineffective in the second and third rounds of fight against Mirko Filipovic on Saturday. As he tweeted after the match:

"Broke hand in first Broke something in foot in first or second…it sucks to say, but I pannicked last night after I knew my hand and foot were done. I burned out trying to end it with power hits."

Photos of Barry lookin’ mad handicapped are below. As for the allegedly broken-jaw that Cro Cop seemed to have suffered in the first round? According to this horribly-translated interview, it’s just some "ham" under the eye. Also, he might be retiring from MMA. Though to be fair, Cro Cop announces his retirement after every fight.

The caption for the last pic should be: "Baaby-Ruuth!"

ahh the dreaded ham under the eye...
atleast it wasn't the oft career-ending turkey above the tit...

Rich isn't looking better, he's just been fighting other old fighters. Let's see him fight Forrest, Machida, or Jones before people start talking about title shots. Hopefully Chuck will get a spot in the booth, ya know to make Goldberg sound sober.

^^^ Because it's fun to draw penises on its face when you're hammered. It's a great way to entertain guests of all ages.

@ Robonercop

I believe you are correct sir, we should be seeing Randy and Chuck rolling about the town with IV's any day now.

Obviously to pick up skanks. Its like a hunting blind/deer call for girls with chlamydia.

Why does Chuck carry a cardboard cutout of Jake Shields to his parties?
Smitty- June 14, 2010 at 10:44 am
What about Chuck Berry, and the original Smitty, my papa Chuck Smith! And yes I'm almost 40 and still call my late papa, papa.

what I dont get it why Chuck hasn't been made to switch trainers, long ago...

and if you think about it, Mir's two collosal annihilations at the hands of lesnar and carwin were ten times more devestating than any of chucks ko's. The only real time chuck was really ktfo was by rashad. I think now, this one came in 2nd. Rampage fight was stopped early, chuck bounced right back up...nothing happened of significance against jardine, shogun was borderline stopped early, but chuck still recovered quickly.

Where is all this damage he is supposedly taken? Mir got beaten within an inch of his life on two almost consecutive occasions and no one is talking retirement from damage about him...

I call shenanigans.

Damn Rich is a tough SOB. Is it just me, or does his career suddenly have more vitality than it has the past couple of years. Honestly, I could see him getting back in there with Belfort and mixing it up -- as in he can actually take a shot better now than he could then.

Charlie "Chuck" Brown, as that lesbo Peppermint Patty always calls him.
Almost North- June 14, 2010 at 8:55 am
Charles "Chuck" Barkley, who should actually be first on that list. Dude is more famous than tuberculosis.

Oh and Chuck Rock

Chuck Liddell is a real bad ass no matter what. He sheds his skin twice a year.

Chuck Liddell counted to infinity...twice.

When Chuck Liddell jumps in the pool he doesn't get wet the water gets Chuck Liddell.

He once hit a horse with an uppercut...the descendants of that horse are better known as giraffes.
When Bruce Banner gets mad, he turns into the Hulk. When the Hulk gets mad, he turns into Chuck Liddell.

Chuck Liddell can blow bubbles with beef jerky.

When the Boogey man goes to sleep at night he checks his closet for Chuck Liddell.

Chuck Norris played Russian Roulette with a fully loaded gun and won.

Chuck Liddell seasons his steaks with Pepper Spray.

Chuck liddell. If you spell "Chuck Liddell" while playing scrabble you win.....forever!

Or is it Chuck Norris that I'm thinking of? which one has the red hair?
provrorsbarn- June 14, 2010 at 8:30 am
I know croatian:
Cro cop says that he will probably retire cuz he doesnt belive that the ufc will keep him around (or give him a good offer)...he also says that he does not have the motiavtion to train for fights..."the hunger" isnt with him anymore.....

well first time cro cop said he would reitre...was after the Pride GP Finals....who knows :P maybe he wants a better deal....

but damn i wish he would retire already......
Almost North- June 14, 2010 at 8:21 am
Anyone remember the name of that lisping Canadian reff in the Funch fight? Made Nick Ring sound like James Earl Jones. That was the stupidest warning I've ever seen. I think that was worse than the Eve's Latrine stoppage. Is there nothing that can be done to get these clowns fired?
midget tosser- June 14, 2010 at 8:13 am
That's what you get for not drinking your ensure shake Rich!

It was announced the day after the fight that Rich "Ace" Franklin is going to be the new spokesperson for once a month Boniva!

@MMA Mafia

Haha the chuckster has had rigor mortis for 3 or 4 years now. It is pretty amazing to watch combined with his OCD shadow boxing. Makes me happy to know he has a job now that his career is over. The world always needs more rock'em sock'em robots, even in this economy.

Chuck was born to party hard...

The arm bone (the vulva or whatever it's called) is thin near the hand, and a shin bone headed for your face is a perfect storm for breakage when you try to block it with your toothpick arm bone.

I'm sure we'll end up seeing Chuck/Randy IV before it's all said and done.
