PostSubject: Tyrone Spong suffers severely broken leg at Glory: Istanbul, eerily similar to Anderson Silva's injury   Mon Apr 14, 2014 10:57 pm

Quote :
After winning earlier in the night, Tyrone Spong at Glory 15 on Saturday suffered a severely broken leg that was eerily reminiscent of former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva’s UFC 168 injury.

Spong defeated Saulo Cavalari in the kickboxing semifinal tournament bout to move into the final opposite Gokhan Saki. About a minute and a half into the opening round, Spong launched a right leg low kick. His leg snapped upon impact, much like Silva’s did against Chris Weidman.

Although he was kickboxing on Saturday, Spong also has a parallel career in mixed martial arts with a 2-0 record. He had anticipated a likely return to the World Series of Fighting cage this summer, but this injury is likely to put him on the shelf for quite some time.

There was no immediate information available in regard to his condition and what the recovery process would be.

Just judging by by the look of the leg at the time of the injury and Spong's reaction, my first thought is that it wasn't as severe as Silva's injury. Maybe he didn't break both bones like Sila did? I haven't heard much detail about it since, other than he has had successful surgery and could be back in 6 months, but given that the leg didn't "flop" around as much as Silva's did and his leg muscles didn't seem to contort and retreat in reaction to the injury like in Silva's case, I'm inclined to think it wasn't the exact same break.

Still, really freaky that this has happened to two such high profile and skilled fighters in such a short timeframe.
