Fedor Breaks Nose and Injures Hand in Victory...*UPDATE*
According to Sherdog.com, WAMMA heavyweight champ Fedor Emelianenko suffered a broken nose and injured his left hand during Saturday night’s tussle with Brett Rogers. The Russian successfully made his U.S. primetime debut on “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers” last night, but it appears to have come at a slight price.
A source close to Team Fedor told the website that the first examination could not determine if Emelianenko had broken bones in his left haymaker, but he intends to visit a specialist on Sunday to further assess the damage.
Emelianenko extended his nearly nine-year winning streak last night by slapping Rogers silly inside the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. MMA’s Terminator caught the former Sam’s Club employee with a vicious right, sending Rogers to the canvas 1:48 into the 2ndRound.
After briefly attending a post-fight press conference, a banged-up Emelianenko was sent to a local hospital. He later returned with his left arm in a soft cast that went up to his elbow area.
