Laundry List of Injuries From "Fight For the Troops"

Sportsline.com has the rundown of the injuries from last night's action starting with the word on Corey Hill:

Once the fight was stopped, officials rushed into the ring to attend to Hill. The show was delayed for approximately 20-25 minutes while medical personnel placed Hill's leg in an immobilizer, administered a pain-killing injection on the spot, and placed him on a stretcher.

Afterward, CBSSports.com overheard a medical official with the North Carolina Boxing Commission indicate that Hill had suffered a broken tibia and that he was scheduled to undergo emergency surgery. It is believed that Hill's recovery could take between 12-18 months.

Razak Al-Hassan:

While Al-Hassan was walking past media row on his way to the backstage area, a large mass could be seen near his elbow on his right arm. The mass appeared to be the size of a softball. An immediate diagnosis was not available, but it's possible that Al-Hassan had suffered a broken arm and that the mass was possibly tendon that had dislodged from bone and rolled up into his arm.

Jonathan Goulet:

It was also a very rough night for Goulet, who was TKO'd during the night's co-main event against Mike Swick just 33 seconds into the fight. According to the French Canadian's agent, Ken Pavia, a visibly shaken Goulet was taken to the hospital immediately after the contest in order to undergo a brain scan.

Additionally, Pavia indicated that Goulet possibly suffered an MCL tear during the fight and that doctors will not be able to formally diagnose the injury until swelling in the damaged region begins to subside next week.

And Yoshiyuki Yoshida:

Yoshiyuki Yoshida -- knocked out by Josh Koscheck during the night's main event -- also required medical attention. Yoshida could be seen laying on the canvas motionless after falling to the mat face first following a big right hand delivered by Koscheck. An update on Yoshida's condition was not immediately available.

The UFC did have an update on their site that Yoshida had been released from the hospital after being diagnosed as having a concussion.  Good to hear that it was nothing more serious than that.

It is a tough day to argue against the percieved brutality of our sport with everything that went down last night and all we can do is send out our best wishes to all the fighters for a speedy recovery.
