Scott Smith sustains broken hand in loss to Robbie Lawler

Scott “Hands of Steel” Smith might have to change his nickname.

According to Dave Carmichael of the Carmichael Dave Show on KHTK in Sacramento, Calif., Smith broke one of his hands in the first round against Elite XC Middleweight Champion “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler this past Saturday during the Elite XC: “Unfinished Business” main event.

Smith seemed to fight much more tentatively in that second round. It was a drastic departure from the almost reckless, caution-to-the-wind strategy he used in the first fight and through most of the first round of this rematch.

He said after the fight that he was waiting on referee Herb Dean to stop the action to check on the gash on top of Lawler’s head. His exact words were that he was, “waiting for someone else to end the fight.”

Perhaps Smith did feel like the blood pouring from Lawler’s skull was going to be enough to get a doctor stoppage eventually, but with hindsight being 20/20, maybe a broken hand was more to blame for Smith’s cautious approach.

Either way, Lawler took advantage of an inactive Scott Smith by turning up the aggression and ending the fight himself before the cut on his head ever became a factor. And in the process he put an end to the Robbie Lawler and Scott Smith saga … for now.

There’s no word on how long this injury will keep him out of action, but broken hands aren’t exactly rare in this sport. He is reportedly scheduled to have surgery on Wednesday.
