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.

Assuncao snapped an eight-fight win streak for Easton, earning his third consecutive win in the process. He is 4-1 since entering the UFC.
