That old saying of pain is temporary held true for Raphael Assuncao this past weekend.
Assuncao confirmed on Twitter that he suffered a broken arm during the first round of his fight with Mike Easton. The Brazilian continued on, earning a win to improve to 18-4 in his career.
Broke my arm in the first round ! Thought it was a muscle spasm at first but was broke…no excuse lets keep the improvements + recovery on.
