Fedor Emlianenko- injury

From an article taken from the ESPN website:

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Fedor Emelianenko suffered a broken nose and injured his left hand during his heavyweight bout with Brett Rogers Saturday at Strikeforce/M-1 Global “Fedor versus Rogers,” has learned from a source close to the fighter’s camp. Emelianenko, 33, knocked down Rogers with a right hook and finished the Minnesotan with follow-up punches 1 minute, 48 seconds into the second round. After attending a postfight news conference, Emelianenko was sent to a local hospital. He returned later Saturday night with his left arm in a soft cast nearly up to his elbow. The source said the first examination could not determine whether Emelianenko had broken bones in his hand, but the Russian is expected to visit a doctor again Sunday to further assess the damage.
