Tyrone Spong suffers brutal leg break in GLORY 15 tourney final
In a kickboxing rematch against Gokhan Saki at GLORY 15 in Istanbul, Spong threw a kick to Saki’s left leg. Saki checked the kick, and Spong’s lower right leg broke immediately and he fell to the canvas.
The injury happened a little more than 90 seconds into their light heavyweight tournament final. Even before the referee could officially wave the fight off, Saki was over to the fallen Spong to comfort him.
There was no immediate word on just what kind of recovery time Spong might be looking at. But almost certainly, his near future for World Series of Fighting will be put on hold. In MMA, Spong is 2-0 and was expected to return in July at WSOF 11.
