Tyrone Spong, one of the best kickboxers on the planet, just suffered a horrific leg break in his GLORY 15 main event with Gokhan Saki.

Spong threw a leg kick which was checked by Saki, leading to a broken leg, similar to the recent Anderson Silva leg break against Chris Weidman.

Here are some tweets from the moments following the injury:

We'll have more coverage of the event (which will air on Spike TV) later tonight.
