UPDATED: Fedor Emelianenko Injures Nose, Hand in Strikeforce Victory Over Brett Rogers

Sherdog has the story:

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 vs. Rogers," Sherdog.com has learned from a source close to the fighter's camp.

...

After attending a post-fight press conference, Emelianenko was sent to local hospital. He returned later the same evening with his left arm in a soft cast nearly up to his elbow.

UPDATE: MMA Weekly has a report from Fedor's camp denying that the nose is broken:

Fedor Emelianenko did not sustain a broken nose in his Saturday fight with Brett Rogers, according to a member of his camp.

...

Steven Bash, Emelianenko's translator and American representative, said Sunday that the jab caused a deep cut to his nose, but did not damage it in any other way.

Bash confirmed that Emelianenko injured his left hand and may have dislocated his thumb requiring it to be popped back into place. The Russian heavyweight was later outfitted with a soft cast at a Chicago area hospital.
