Krzysztof Soszynski Believes He Broke His Hand Against Goran Reljic At UFC 122

November 14, 2010

Krzysztof Soszynski showed up at the “UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami” post-fight press conference with his right hand bandaged and feels he broke it somewhere in the second or early third round in his unanimous decision win over Goran Reljic in Oberhausen, Germany on Saturday.

“I’m pretty sure it’s broken. I hurt it at the end of the second round or right at the start of the third,” Soszynski told the media following his UFC 122 win. “My hand was on fire during the third round. It was on fire. I couldn’t feel anything in it the whole third round. I was just swinging away trying to finish him.”

Soszynski won the stand-up exchanges throughout the fight and took over in the third round with a possible broken weapon.

“The Polish Experiment” didn’t know exactly when or what strike injured his hand, just that it happened either at the end of the second round or the start of the third.

“I have no idea,” responded Soszynski when asked when he felt he broke his hand. “All I know is the third round I couldn’t feel a thing. I have no idea what punch it was. It was right at the beginning of the third round or at the end of the second. The whole round it was terrible. I just couldn’t feel a thing. I was just winging away as much as I could as hard as I could.”

Soszynski will get his hand examined later and will report the diagnosis and prognosis as it becomes available.
