Efrain Escudero: ‘Nothing broke’

IMG_0348a With the memory of Shinya Aoki snapping Mizuto Hirota’s arm on New Year’s Eve freshly stamped in the collective conscience of the Mixed Martial Arts world, fans fearing the worst after watching Efrain Escudero clutch his arm shortly after tapping out to UFC Fight Night 20 opponent Evan Dunham can now breathe a sigh of relief courtesy of a recent posting on Escudero’s Twitter page. Also unbroken appears to be the Ultimate Fighter Season 8 champion’s spirit…

“Hey guys out the hospital…nothing broke…lil messed up, tenderness. I will be back soon now in hungry!! And expect and Evan vs. Efrain 2!!!”

The defeat was the first of Escudero’s career, dropping his record to 12-1. Dunham is now on a three-fight winning streak inside the Octagon and remains undefeated as a professional. His performance at the event netted “Submission of the Night” honors.
