  2. THE INUK says:

    cung le possible nasal fracture? lmfao its DEF BROKEN dont need a physician to tell you that

  3. KingGareth says:

    So many injuries this card.

  4. josh says:

    Heard that Munoz vs Sonnen is the Main Event for Fox2. With diego vs Ellenberger co main…

    • SanSooRob says:

      I hope so !!! Sonnen going get smashed lol

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      Hope so, because I think Munoz will beat that ass, and I’d love to see Sonnen get POUNDED! But then again, if anybody but Silva beats him, I’m pretty sure he’ll still continue on with all that bs about how he really beat him, so maybe it’s best that Silva gets him next so he can shut him the hell up. At least temporarily…

  5. T.DADDY says:

    that sukks for shogun.. he took a beating and kept on fighting like a beast! bad ass fight

  6. joey says:

    I love this site I noticed that its very unbiased even when it comes to bj like mmafighting put out a report yesterday saying that shogun was fine which obviously simply isnt true its like there all for shogun in every report thanks for giving good facts

  7. GRT 3000 says:

    2 amazing fighters for sure. Shogun looks a little gang raped in this picture though; just sayin’.

  8. magoo says:

    Facial and skull fractures,damn Hendo hits hard,Shogun should take a page outta GSP”s smart fighter 101,with knees like Shoguns and carrying those extra calories,and gassing out to a fighter 12 years your elder….sounds like a recipe for a smashed mellon!

    • krafty11 says:

      pretty sure anyone (including your boy toy GSP) would gas out after getting punched that many times by Hendo. that was an all-out war!

      • magoo says:

        I thought your name was Krafty,thats my point Georges wouldn’t have ate all those Hendo sandwiches,but he’d have Hendo panting like a dog going into the championship rounds!

  9. Long-Strong says:

    the best!
