    jesus, two arm breaks, two bad eye pokes; a detached retina. I dunno if it was just freak accidents or the refs/fighters were not sensitive enough to the issue....
    cabbage also mugged before the fight , and props go out to danilo cherman for getting his arm broken via armbar and fighting back to win the fight via decision ala forrest griffen :eek4: anybody that does that is a total badass in my books....

    Cage Rage Results & Notes

    Arguably the biggest news coming out of the Cage Rage event in London, England this weekend was something that took place before the show even started, as Wes "Cabbage" Correira was mugged on the morning of the show and was unable to fight against Tengiz Tedoradze as scheduled.

    A conversation with Cabbage revealed the true extent of his nightmare in England. Aside from the ten hours in Customs to obtain a work visa when he entered the country, Cabbage had a terrible night’s sleep last night and was up at 6:00 AM this morning, roaming the hotel foyer for water. Whilst not strictly a mugging as nothing was taken, someone snuck up behind him and clubbed him over the back of the head, knocking him out cold.

    For the life of me, I have no idea why this would happen, and neither do the Cage Rage promoters or Cabbage. Needless to say, hotel security footage will be inspected and the police have been involved. Cabbage is adamant that he will fight in the UK again, and he would like his bout against Tedoradze to be rescheduled for the new year.

    In order to keep the show running, James Thompson offered to step into the breach against Tengiz Tedoradze shortly before the show started. Thompson hasn’t been specifically training for anything, but he said he wouldn’t have a problem taking the match on a few hours' notice.

    Unfortunately, the match didn't materialize, as Tedoradze had been working on a specific gameplan for Cabbage that wouldn’t translate to Thompson. So, the spot on the card was vacated and Tedoradze faces a quiet Christmas, having missed out on the chance to fight. Understandably, Cabbage and Tedoradze are both very disappointed.

    A Night of Damage

    Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro, who is the #6 Lightweight in the MMAWeekly Rankings, defeated Pride veteran Daisuke Nakamura with a devastating Kimura. Nakamura would not tap out, and the referee stopped the fight. By that point, Nakamura had suffered three fractures in his arm, as well as severe ligament trauma. Nakamura is now stuck in the UK for a week, as doctors have declared him medically unfit to fly due to the condition of his arm. Shaolin's MMA record improves to 17-1 with the victory.

    Pride and UFC veteran Mark Weir suffered a broken nose and a detached retina in his 40-second mauling at the hands of new British Cage Rage Middleweight Champion Zelg Galesic. This detachment of the retina is Weir’s second, with his first having occurred during his fight in Pride against Denis Kang. Weir apparently caught a thumb in the eye on his way down from a big Galesic hook and was blinded to the onslaught that followed.

    Alex Reid was accidentally thumbed in the eye on two occasions by his opponent, Xavier Foupa Pokam. The initial incident during the first round appeared to affect Reid's vision a little bit, but the thumb in the second round was brutal. While I firmly believe that both thumbs to the eye were unintentional, it highlights the need to be more vigilant with thumb work in future. Maybe a harnessing system on the gloves is the way forward. Reid was unable to continue and the fight went to the judges' scorecards, giving the unanimous decision win to Foupa Pokam.

    Another injury occurred when Danilo Cherman suffered a broken arm as a result of a Jean Silva armbar, but Cherman fought on and managed to win the fight by unanimous decision. This was a nasty break in the elbow that will be difficult to rehab, but somehow Cherman managed to battle through the final four minutes of the fight with the broken appendage to record the unanimous decision win.

    Finally, Eric "Butterbean" Esch took a beating from Rob Broughton, who worked an incredibly mature fight and was able to ground and pound the American heavyweight into a second round submission from strikes. Broughton, who also holds a recent victory over Pride veteran James Thompson, stayed out of Butterbean's range during the fight, avoiding the counters for which Butterbean has been known and working low ankle takedowns with ease.

    Broughton is the guy everyone expects to lose, but like all great warriors, he fights his own way and will not go down easily. James Thompson, Robert Berry, and Butterbean have tried unsuccessfully in recent months to defeat Broughton, and Tengiz Tedoradze will get his chance at Broughton in February.

    Submissions were in full force on this card, with six of the eleven fights ending by submission.
