It’s either an arm break or an arm separation. Either way, we hope you don’t get queasy watching that kind of stuff. This injury is reminiscent of the Mark Coleman vs Shogun Rua injury that happened in Pride. Coleman took Shogun down and Rua tried to break the fall with his arm. His arm snapped and a melee ensued.
While there was no post-fight fracas, the result was still the same in a fight between Akhmed Gakiev and German Barsegyan. Gakiev locked his hands for a takedown and Barsegyan knew that he was going for a ride. Just like Shogun, he extended his arm to break the fall. Just like Shogun, his arm was left looking terrible and hanging from his body.
Check it out.
