Better fighter is the guy who didn't need to get carried out of the cage.

Same thing with Lombard breaking Te'Huna's arm or Mir cracking Nog's arm. A "freak injury" is Travis Browne blowing his knee out throwing a spin kick, or Corey Hill's leg snapping in two throwing a kick. Why is it that we credit guys with KO's when they suplex a guy but if they break a limb it's an accident. Elkins threw him down fast and hard enough to hobble Ludwig, he's a dangerous guy and the better fighter.

It just didn't show much is all I am saying. Im not saying Elkins isn't the better fighter. We just didn't see a fight that night. And I would say that was a freak injury. I would bet it wouldn't happen again if they fought 20 more times.

Elkins did something to inflict damage and won. Yes. But it's the same as seeing a 20 second KO. How much does that really tell you about the fight? We just saw that with Cain/JDS.
