    Default Tyrone Spong suffers brutal leg break in GLORY 15 tourney final

    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.

    Well there you have it. It's only a matter of time before idiots start calling for a ban on leg kicks.


    ...on a side note...

    Spong took it better than Silva...

    Saki was classier in victory than Weidman...

    Bummer in both cases.

    Very true.

    Goes to show you that anybody can get injured with leg kicks, even an 80 plus fight kickboxing vet like Spong can get hurt.

    Fuckin sucks, I woulda liked to see him avenge his loss against Saki but its also nice to see Saki win in his home too

    saki's a class act. much respect to saki for getting really concerned after seeing spong in that situation. wish spong a speedy recovery. don't want him to see get sidelined for a long time in his prime years.

    Pic: 'Bummed' Tyrone Spong returns home from Istanbul, gives airport 'thumbs up'
    "I'm bummed," he told MMAmania.com. "I lost my belt."

    Tyrone is an awesome striker and fun to watch. Sad to see this happen, same as Anderson Silva. He'll come back I have no doubt.
