WSOF 14 main event fighter Ryan Ford revealed that he broke his arm on September 30th, just 12 days before fighting Jake Shields last night.
His words via a private video, which was transcribed by MMAJunkie.
“Today is Oct. 2, Thursday. Part of this game is putting your body through hard work. And unfortunately, two days ago, on Tuesday, at the end of sparring, I broke my arm. I found that out yesterday after seeing the doctor for my X-ray results.”
“You know, I don’t have a choice but to fight. You know, it’s funny. I have the toughest challenge ahead of me on Oct. 11 against Jake Shields. And now I get thrown with another challenge: fighting him with a broken arm.”
