Randy's broken arm

As everyone should know, Gonzaga broke Randy's arm with a high kick that Randy blocked (with his arm). But what I am wondering is Randy is 44 years old, and as great as he is, that broken arm can not be good for him.

I mean, I had a broken wrist when I wrestled in 7th grade and it healed, the doctor said a broken bone will usually become stronger after its healed but instead mines became weaker.

Randy is 44, his bone doesn't grow no more so does this mean his arm will now become substantially weaker because bone growth isn't as good at his age or it might not even heal at all and become in some form of arthritis? I am not trying to make it sound like Randy is 75 year old or nothing but it was just something that came to mind.

Its probably just a small fracture, I wouldn't worry about it. Randy is the man.

If it was a major fracture, it would've swelled up and Randy would've had to quit. He would not have been physically able to use it.

I'm sure he'll back full force for the next opponent.

I dont exactly want to downplay a broken arm. But I really don't think it was a very severe fracture. We all love to think of a heroic Randy Couture battling against unimaginable pain to pull of a miracle win, but in reality I am guessing it went more like

'Oooh, lucky he didn't take my head off...ow my arm hurts'

rather than

'RAWWWWWRRRRRR THIS DOES NOTHING TO ME!!! ILL FIGHT AGAINST THIS EVIL COMMUNIST FOR FREEDOM!!! FOR THE CHILDREN!! FOR AMERICA!!!! RAWWRRRRRRRR!!!'

He'll be fine. (Of course I actually have no idea about arm fractures and I am not a doctor, feel free to prove me wrong)

if when you say you broke your wrist you mean one of the bones in your wrist (most common is the scaphoid bone) then those are notoriously poor healers and most dont heal requiring an opertation to graft bone due to poor circulation around that bone i had this done a few years back and was warned beforehand there was a good chance it wouldnt heal on its own.
