In this amazing image, captured by Ed Mulholland for ESPN.com, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira stares at his mangled arm immediately after Frank Mir got done breaking it in the co-main event of UFC 140 last night (Dec. 10, 2011) in Toronto.
It was the first time in the legendary Brazilian's career that he's been submitted.
UFC President Dana White mentioned to Ariel Helwani that Nogueira also suffered injuries to his shoulder in addition to breaking his arm, which will require immediate surgery. In fact, "Minotauro" will be flying out with White tomorrow to get taken care of. He's expected to be out for quite a while.
After the jump is the x-ray of Nogueira's arm, which shows the brutally broken bone.

Hats off to Mir for the sick submission
Good luck to Nog getting that wing mended.
Who's faster home to first? Yadi or Torty?


damn man
Mir has Nogs number. Nog should have stuck to the GnP, tried to make a statement going for that choke and instead he may be out for a long long time. I’m more worried about the shoulder injury since it isn’t fully disclosed yet, at least the break was quick and kind of clean, they can reset it well.

I posted earlier that i thought there may be a shoulder injury too?
If yes, it is like Nog was death rolled on that arm buy a big croc/gator….. Like an industrial accident. Mir was really sick with that shit, really solid. Traditional jitz is still very potent.

it's like people seem to forget
for all the commentating and Pompousness Mir exudes dude is a monster on the ground. I’d like to see Mir V Barnett if Josh wins The SF Tourney and comes over. Catch as Catch can it would be a american grappling clinic on display.

That is a top call
I think Josh would get it, only because he is a very natural athlete and possibly with better cardio. His Catch wrestling is so active…… Again i’m immediatly under rating Mir?? Mir has really earned my respect.

I'm one of the few people here that likes Mir as a fighter and commentator. But I find it near impossible to root against Nogueira.
Not many people like him. Excellent guy and I hope he’s ok.
"It’s Mark Pavelich calling from the Maximum Fighting Championship,
I’ve just received notice that Drew Fickett or you, I don’t care which one of you fuckers did it, has signed a contract to fight in Strikeforce this fucking weekend. I’m going to get on a fucking plane soon and go where you’re at and choke you the fuck out. I’m telling you right now, I’ve had enough of your fucking shit. First of all, I’ve sent you the fucking pictures and secondly, I placed Drew Fickett in a fight fucking months ago and five weeks prior to my main event of my fucking fight card. You’re going to give me a fucking call tomorrow or I swear I’ll get on a fucking plane and go right where you’re at right now. You’re pissing me off, I’ve been nothing but professional to you motherfuckers and you’re doing this kind of bullshit, alright? Call me back, I’m fucking pissed."

Hill's leg still takes the cake for me
The dude tried to step on that stump which is worse than what happened to Nog. Nog’s break must have sounded like a gun going off as I’ve broken the same bone and it was loud.

Make that two breaks that Herb Dean has witnessed.
This one and Mir vs Sylvia. When I saw that snap, I was like holy shit again?!

idiot
Nog is a fool for not tapping. This injury could plague him for the rest of his life. Totally blew the striking, could have finished Mir.


I feel like Nog was not tapping
because he had Mir on the ropes 15 seconds earlier, and had faint hope of escaping and finishing what he started. Then SNAP

Doesn’t look that bad. I thought his shoulder might have been dislocated. Nog doesn’t even care.
Bobby Southworth


He really doesn't seem to I agree. Not even much sign of pain during or after the submission.
Crazy.

That’s how Nog works. He didn’t even flinch, just calmy tapped. The average person reacts differently when their arm gets snapped.

That picture should be used in a close caption competition
Thank fuck this didn’t go down in Brazil.
