is there an update on how he was doing, how surgery went ect? I've been looking on line but havent been able to find much.
Tyrone Spong suffered a broken shin bone at GLORY 15 in Turkey over the weekend, but has already undergone successfully surgery.
The kickboxing star and budding MMA fighter posted an update on the Blackzilians official site on Monday.
Spong suffered his first loss in kickboxing since a 2010 defeat at the hands of Alistair Overeem. He is 74-7-1 in that arena, while holding a 2-0 professional MMA record. He is signed to a deal with the World Series of Fighting.“I want my family, friends and fans to know that I’m okay. The trip home to Florida was a long one and I am thankful to be back in Florida. I had surgery this morning and it went perfectly,” the 28-year-old posted. “My Doctors said it turned out to be a clean break and they feel confident that I will recover 100-percent. They said I can be training for a fight as early as six months if I rehab properly.
“I feel very optimistic. Thank you all for your support.”
As he stated, if all goes smoothly, Spong could be back in six months. Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva suffered a broken leg in similar fashion to Spong’s injury in December.
There are many paths to freedom, not all are peaceful
Many morons in Sherdog are already calling AS a pussy because Spong mantained a straight face and AS was showing that he was in extreme pain.
Anderson's break looked worse. And maybe Spong has more pain tolerance, but AS is a fucking beast aswell, and that kind of a break looks extremely extremely painful.
I am sure that anyone who calls AS a bitch, would be crying after receiving a good leg kick from a professional fighter.
A well placed low kick from a strong person is very very painful, now imagine a kick from a pro fighter.
Not only brazilians can do this stuff
It's obvious that a leg break is bad... but for a pro athlete is way worse... I just figure that AS went through his emotions of break/potential career ender... while TS went... WTF just happened?!?...
The adrenaline masks the pain at the moment...
Anyone know why kickboxing records are so damn inconsistent?Spong suffered his first loss in kickboxing since a 2010 defeat at the hands of Alistair Overeem. He is 74-7-1 in that arena, while holding a 2-0 professional MMA record. He is signed to a deal with the World Series of Fighting.
This article & Wikipedia says: 74-7-1
Glory Website says: 90-5-0
And I think I saw somewhere else where it said 80 something wins.
