Conor Huen breaks arm in win

source: mmamania.com
 

Strikeforce: "Overeem vs. Werdum" last night (June 18) from Dallas, Texas can be characterized quite simply as one of the ugliest events of the year.

There are many reasons for this, from the main event snoozer pitting Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum to K.J. Noons busted up and battered face to Justin Wilcox turn as cyclops.

Adding to the carnage at the American Airlines Center is Conor Heun, who broke his arm in his fight against Mango Almeida, as you can see in the somewhat gruesome picture above, thanks to Tracy Lee for Yahoo! Sports.

The kicker? Heun actually fought through his injury and went on to take a unanimous decision win on scores of 29-28 across the board. There are some folks that totally disagree with the decision but no one can question the grit and toughness exhibited by "Hurricane" in this fight.

I used to hate on fighters like Palhares or Aoki for holding submissions too long. But with fighters like Heun it makes it difficult to do anything about it.

Conor let me officially apologize to you for the fact that you actually have to fuckin pick between a broken arm and maybe your job. I know business is business but that is still fucking lame.Now I completely understand why you didn't tap and risked what you did.Serious SERIOUS respect man.

I've looked for this fight but can't find it. The Gracie breakdown made it seem exciting though!
