Randy Couture Breaks Arm

The Fight Network is reporting that UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture (16-8) broke his arm while blocking a right high kick with his left forearm during his third round TKO stoppage of Gabriel Gonzaga (8-2).

Couture, 44, sustained the injury Saturday blocking a Gonzaga right high kick with his left forearm, cleanly separating the ulna bone with a “nightstick fracture,” a break common in law enforcement circles. The injury placed the UFC heavyweight champion’s arm in a splint for six weeks. The appendage will not need a cast.
