Amber Brown ender her three-fight skid – and did so with a clearly painful submission.
At Friday’s Invicta FC 26 event, former atomweight title challenger Brown (7-4) stopped Tessa Simpson (5-3) with a 50-second armbar. However, once Brown got the tap and untangled herself from her opponent, we saw the nasty aftermath of the submission (via Twitter):
The end of the 106.3-pound catchweight fight (Brown missed weight for the strawweight encounter), which streamed on UFC Fight Pass from Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., caught the attention of cageside commentators Julie Kedzie and T.J. De Santis, who noticed Simpson’s mangled left arm.
“Tessa had a beautiful sweep over the top, but Amber Brown was able to secure her legs up around the top, grab for that armbar, and just rip it out – dislocating the elbow, if I’m not mistaken,” Kedzie said in a voiceover for the event’s video highlights. “She had to pop it back in right in there.”
Here’s that video (via YouTube):
There wasn’t any immediate word on Simpson’s condition after the event, though we’re wishing “The Typhoon” the best.
