December 17, 2012 | Posted by Larry Csonka

According to, Rousimar Palhares suffered ligament damage and broken bones in his right foot after throwing an early in his UF Con FX 6 bout this past weekend. Palhares had the following to say about the injury…

“During the fight, my kick was working well. But soon in the first round, one of my kicks hit Lombard’s shin below his knee. I heard a snap, and I knew something bad happened.

From that moment on, I [started] feeling my foot more and more numb and without strength to walk around the octagon. It was a very complicated situation. I went through something similar in the fight against Jeremy Horn when I broke my hand during the fight.”
