REFEREE AL WIKCERS, FORCED TO

CALL THE FIGHT.

MAN, IT'S A FIGHT GAME.

BUT WOW.

YOU'VE GOT TO FEEL FOR TYRONE

SPONG AND IN A WAY, YOU'VE GOT

TO FEEL FOR GOKHAN SAKI, THAT

THEY WEREN'T ABLE TO PUT ON A

SHOW FOR THE CROWD TONIGHT.

AN ANTI-CLIMATIC FINISH, BUT

MORE IMPORTANTLY -- AS A

KICKBOXER, TO BREAK YOUR LEG

RIGHT THERE.

YOU HEARD THE CRACK.

>> I WAS IN MONTREAL, WHEN BRIAN

GASWAY FOUGHT BELELANDY.

ANDERSON SILVA, CHRIS WEIDMAN.

AND TYRONE SPONG WITH A LEG

VERY, AND THAT BRINGS A SUDDEN

STOPPAGE TO THIS TIME.

>> YOU CREDIT THAT, THAT'S WHY

YOU KICK.

YOU KNOW, THOSE ARE THE WILD

THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN

KICKBOXING.

WHY THIS IS SUCH AN INTENSE

SPORT.

WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT IT IT.

HERE, HE TAKE THE INSIDE KICK

PRETTY HARD.

YOU SEE HOW HE TURNED THE LEG

OUT, AND HE STEPS DOWN GINGERLY

ON IT.

TRAUMA IS WHEN GOKHAN STEPS HIS

LEFT TOES OUT.

HE MAKES SURE HE WALKS WITH THE

HARDEST PART OF HIS SHIP.

THE KICKING LEG KEEPS GOING, AND

WHAT CAUSES THAT INJURY IS WHEN

THE VELOCITY DRIVES THE LEG

FORWARD AND IT'S LIKE HITTING A

BRICK WALL.

>> WHAT ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL

BEHAVIOR, NO CELEBRATION FOR

GOKHAN SAKI.

HE DIDN'T WANT TO WIN THE FIGHT

THIS WAY.

IMMEDIATELY GOING OVER TYRONE

SPONG TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED AND

HOW HE'S FEELING BUT A VERY

UNFORTUNATE TURN OF EVENTS BUT

THE THE FIGHT GAME, WE HAVE SEEN

IT, UNFORTUNATE.

YOU'VE SEEN ONCE, YOU'VE SEEN IT

IT TOO MANY TIMES.

CHECKING A KICK, IS PART OF THE

GAME.

>> I BROKE A TIBIA, AND THE BONE

ABOVE THE KNEE.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING UP WANT TO

DO, BUT IT'S PART OF THE SPORT.

>> WE ARE NOT DOCTORS, AND WE

WON'T BEGIN TO SPECULATE AT THE

INJURY BUT IT WAS ENOUGH FOR HIM

TO CAPITULATE GOKHAN SAKI WILL

WIN THE GLORY LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT

CHAMPIONSHIP HERE IN FRONT OF

HIS PARTSON FANS.

OKAY.

LET SEND IT TO THE KICK.

WE WILL LAYOUT.

THIS IS WHAT IT SOUNDED LIKE.

WOW.

AGAIN WE WILL NOT SPECULATE WHAT

HAPPENED, PU A VERY SAD SEEN

HERE.

IT TYRONE SPONG ON A STRETCHER.

MARTIAL ARTS FIGHTER.

THEY MAKE THEIR SPORT SO

INTERESTING.

WE DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.

>> AND OF COURSE, AS ANNOUNCER

BROADCASTERS, WE NEED TO STAY

IMPARTIAL.

WHAT AMAZING ME IS WHAT HE WENT

THROUGH TO GET HERE TONIGHT.

AND I APOLOGIZE.

I WANTED TO SEE A TERRIFIC FIGHT

AND LOSING AN UNCLE, GOOD

FRIEND, AND HAVING SUFFERING

FATE. BUT HE IS A PROFESSIONAL

AND FOR GOKHAN SAKI, HE IS THE

LIGHT WAVE WEIGHT CHAMPION.

>> AND AS WELL, HOW IS IT GOING

TO AFFECT HIS FUTURE CAREER.

HOPEFULLY, HE CAN GET TO THE

HOSPITAL AND DIAGNOSE WHAT NEEDS

TO BE DONE ASAP.

BUT YEAH, THAT WAS A TOUGH

INJURY.

I'VE BEEN IN THIS MY WHOLE LIFE,

AND I STILL CAN'T GET OVERSEEING

THAT.

>> THIS IS THE HURT BUSINESS BUT

YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE PEOPLE

SUFFER SERIOUS INJURIES, AND

IT'S THE RISK THESE PROFESSIONAL

ATHLETES TAKE.

BUT FOR GOKHAN SAKI, HE WILL BE

CROWNED THE CHAMPION.

WE KNOW THAT TYRONE SPONG WILL

BE ON HIS WAY IMMEDIATELY TO GET

MEDICAL ATTENTION.

SAKI'S FACE,LET MAKE ITFICIAL
