Just Because: What a Broken Ankle Looks Like

This little bit of nastiness happened last night when Darren Elkins went for a double-leg take-down on Duane Ludwig during their UFC on Versus bout. When Ludwig tried to stuff the attempt the two fighters fell in a heap, and the above shot was the result. Ouch, eh? Elkins had this to say to after the fight:
"I felt him tap so I knew something was wrong. Then I seen on the big screen that his leg was snapped. It sucks to win a fight like this. I wanted to put on a show. It's an unfortunate event but these things happen in fighting all the time."
Apparently the injury could be career-ending, which probably hurts more than the injury itself. Back to the drawing board for Ludwig.
