MMA Fighter Suffers a Gruesome Broken Forearm Defending an Armbar Attempt

SJ - November 2, 2020

The co-main event at Standout Fighting Tournament 22 on Halloween ended with a gruesome broken forearm.

The bantamweight fight between Karine Silva and Sidy Rocha went to the ground and ended as Silva was attempting to secure an armbar.

That's right Rocha's forearm snapped before it was even secured in the armbar.  She didn't get a chance to make the decision to tap or not.

Someone needs to up their calcium or something.  I've never seen a forearm snap attempting to defend an armbar.

There has to have been some sort of injury to her arm before this right?
