Pardon the pun in the headline but it seems yet another fighter has sustains a significant injury this week.  April is usually a month for practical jokes but these matters aren’t funny at all.  First reported by Southwest Fight News, Holly Holm, a world champion veteran boxer snapped her Ulna (outer bone of the forearm, connecting to the elbow) while fighting for the Legacy FC title on April 4th.

Although Holm was able to dominate and disassemble her opponent (Juliana Werner) with a series of leg, body and a final staggering head kick. By the end of the 5th round it was clear who the winner was.  Many observers were scratching their heads wondering why she was notably conservative with her punches during the entire fight but sometime after news came via Facebook that the amazing female fighter had broken her forearm during the fight.  Exactly when this happened is unknown but it has been speculated this occurred sometime during the first round of the fight.
