Antonio Minotauro Nogueira With Broken Arm At UFC 140

DuringĀ  the bout with Frank Mir, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira suffered a broken arm in the first round at UFC 140, the black belt came out and stunned Frank Mir with a barrage of punches only to get taken down and not only did he get submitted , but Frank Mir broke his arm via Kimura from the top position on Minotauro’s right arm torquing it all the way to his back .

This is the first time Minotauro , the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt has been submitted in the Octagon, we congratulate Frank Mir on the win as he is also a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and hope the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and world champ ,Minotauro can recover to come back from such a gruesome injury and look for more news on the topic post fight .

The UFC released the xray of the now confirmed broken arm ( Humerus ) of Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira and reports coming in that he will need surgery to repair the damage done at the hands of Frank Mir. Tapping to a Kimura lock is not a cowardly move and we hope that any Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner who competes and gets put in a similar lock, to tap and maintain health to compete another day.
