Strikeforce Tate vs Rousey Photo: Jacare Souza's Broken Hand

Photo via Tatame

Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza broke his left hand against Bristol Marunde at Saturday's Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey fight card seen on Showtime. Jacare beat Marunde handily -- landing a ton of hard overhand rights. This x-ray photograph published by Tatame goes a long way towards explaining why Jacare wasn't following up the right hands with many combinations.

Jacare won the fight by submission in the third round, but it was really his wrestling and striking that won him the fight. He repeatedly tagged Marunde with hard punches, even dropping him in the first round. Combined with that dominant striking was a very nice series of take downs, several using the fence for leverage.

This was Souza's first fight back since losing his Strikeforce middleweight belt to Luke Rockhold last September. Hopefully the injury won't require a tremendously long lay-off before he is able to return to action.
