Brett Rogers fought Alexander Volkov with one very broken arm


Brett Rogers lost to Alexander Volkov in the Bellator heavyweight tournament this weekend. Losing to Fedor Emelianenko, Alistair Overeem, and Josh Barnett is understandable, but losing a unanimous decision to the unheralded Volkov left many fans ready to stick a fork in him.

However, it turns out that Rogers broke his arm in the first two minutes of the fight. In an interview with Rachel Mondeau, Rogers explans.

"I was really unsure of what happened to my arm," said Rogers. "I didn’t really know until about the third round that it was broken. I’ve never broke anything on my body before, so I just kept I kept going. I thought I needed to keep fighting. By the time I found out that it was, I just felt that I needed to keep going and hopefully catch him with something—catch him with that left.

"I’ve never broken anything. It was a surreal moment for me. I was like fuck — something ain't right. I need to keep going with this and hope for the best. Volkov definitely realized by the third round that something wasn’t right, so he was trying to test me out from top to bottom. By the time we found it, it was just a little too late.

"I did my part as far as surviving and making to it to the decision. That still is not a fight that I ever want to fight. I never want to have that type of fight again. Ever."
