Paul Felder told his corner after the first round that he’d broken his arm.
Paul Felder is as tough as it gets. Dude suffered a badly broken arm in the first minutes of his fight versus Mike Perry at UFC 226 and continued fighting for three rounds. Our editor Evan Shoman posted a video of his many injuries from that fight and now his manager Brian Butler of Suckerpunch Ent. has posted the x-ray of the arm break.
Brian basically pointed out how amazing Felder is for his performance in this fight. Brian Butler said the following.
One weeks notice, go up a weight class, fight 2.5 rounds with a broken arm… hold my beer. #irishdragon
Felder not only survived the final two and a half rounds with one arm, he fought to a competitive split decision loss. Hats off to Felder, can’t wait to see him back in the cage once he’s healed up.
