Brian Ortega’s arm popped (when it wasn’t supposed to)

Yeah, so Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez were just getting down to what was shaping up as a pretty fun main event on Saturday’s UFC on ABC card when Ortega’s shoulder popped out of joint while he was trying to escape an arm bar. So, that was a very specific sort of bummer that might only happen in MMA. Now, you gotta try to explain to your non-MMA buddies what a shame it was that this guy’s arm popped … at a time when we didn’t think it was going to pop.

Also, Dana White doesn’t seem like he wants to talk about Nate Diaz anymore and UFC London is actually kind of a stacked card!
