Gomi broke hand in first round of bout with Sanchez


Gomi x-ray

The UFC on Fuel 8 bout between Diego Sanchez and Takanori Gomi generated a lot of controversy when the scorecards were announced and Sanchez was awarded a split decision victory. I considered it the best overall fight of Gomi's UFC career to date, and it's too bad that he ended up taking the loss. But it turns out that Gomi turned in the admirable performance even while fighting with a handicap - he broke his right hand in the first round of his bout. He posted an x-ray of the injury in his blog.

And he went to the hospital in Ogikubo, which probably doesn't mean much to most people but makes me happy.

LOL. No, definitely not. In the United States we don't do CT of the hand for suspected fractures. Ever.

Would vtfu gomi every day if he was here. I thought he won. 5th digit break isnt horrible, but in 1st round against diego?Im a medical person. Im still amazed when i see fractures like this, that the fucking spear of a bone doesnt just go right through the glove like a Baraka sword hand.

I had $10 on Hunt, Wand and Gomi at 30 to 1. Pissed off was an understatement.

Did Diego duck to intentionally take the punch on top of the head? I can't remember and don't want to watch all that boringness again. That's impressive though if he intentionally broke Gomi's hand like that.

I knew it! You could hear a pop when he threw it in the first. Shows you how much of a warrior gomi is. Wasn't easy to tell.
