UFC Fight Night 16 Injury Report


Ouch…Corry Hill suffered a broken leg (tibia) during his fight with Dale Hartt. Hill was rushed to the hospital to immediately undergo emergency surgery.

Fighter Razak Al-Hassan refused to tap when caught in an armbar, forcing Steve Mazzagatti to call a technical submission. Sportline:

While Al-Hassan was walking past media row on his way to the backstage area, a large mass could be seen near his elbow on his right arm. The mass appeared to be the size of a softball. An immediate diagnosis was not available, but it’s possible that Al-Hassan had suffered a broken arm and that the mass was possibly tendon that had dislodged from bone and rolled up into his arm.

Jonathan Goulet:

It was also a very rough night for Goulet, who was TKO’d during the night’s co-main event against Mike Swick just 33 seconds into the fight. According to the French Canadian’s agent, Ken Pavia, a visibly shaken Goulet was taken to the hospital immediately after the contest in order to undergo a brain scan.

Additionally, Pavia indicated that Goulet possibly suffered an MCL tear during the fight and that doctors will not be able to formally diagnose the injury until swelling in the damaged region begins to subside next week.

Yoshiyuki Yoshida was taken to the hospital following his KO loss to Josh Koscheck. He was later released.

    Some people definately got f'ed up. I would have held Yoshida overnight …. I mean .. damn. At least show him the replay to see if he has some type of flashback.

    Better knockout not counting the status of who was involved I'd say for pure theatrics the kos knockout is best of the year. The rashad evans one is second . If you include status then I would say rashad knockout by a hair.

    hills leg looks sick. it makes mine hurt just looking at it. yoshida looked out while he was still standing and then kos landed another shot. Kos hits hard. I'm with you on those 2 knockouts. Rashad and Kos are the best of the year.

    I would put Jeremy Stephens KO right up there too. That was a viscious uppercut. It was a rough night for some UFC fighters.

    just because you can cut down to that little of a weight doesnt mean you should….he is way too tall to fight lightweight he needs to be up there with the welterweights at the very least….he is out now for 12-18 months

    What a night tho this may have been the best fights of the year on any card. Did any fight even make to the third? Maybe one. Good stuff kudos to joe silva!!

    Well, it was definately the best FREE card. Yeah, Corey needs to do something with those toothpick legs. Build up his calves, drink more milk, whatever. Hpw much weight does he cut to get into that division?
