Leg Break from RFA 18

When will it end? We have another leg break in MMA. On first glance it may seem like nothing but a jarred knee but on closer inspection we notice that Adrian Cruz’s (pictured above) leg actually bends under his own bodyweight.

It is incredible that he didn’t stop the fight there and then but must have drew inspiration from Tim Sylvia on what to do if you break a bone during a fight. Unlike the Russian fighter that broke his leg and still won, this fight ended after just 22 seconds and Justin Linn was awarded the TKO victory.

Check out the results and the video below:

Flyweight Title-
Alexandre Pantoja def. Matt Manzanares via sub (rear-naked), round 2, 2:38.
Abel Cullum def. Ulysses Gomez via sub (guillotine), round 1.
Chidi Njokuani def. Steve Hanna via unanimous decision.
Brenda Gonzales def. Heather Bassett via sub (armbar), round 1.
Mehdi Baghdad def. Evan DeLong via knockout (punches), round 1.
Justin Linn def. Adrian Cruz via TKO (injury, punches), round 1.
