James Gonzalez wins CFFC title by nasty injury TKO

James Gonzalez stepped in on short notice and captured the Cage Fury Fighting Championships featherweight title Saturday night in Bensalem, Pa., with one of the nastiest finishes you’ll see all year. But be warned: This one isn’t for the faint of heart.

Gonzalez (6-3) challenged defending champion Pat Sabatini (11-3) in the main event of CFFC 81, which streamed on UFC Fight Pass, and finished his man in just 46 seconds with a stomach-churning injury TKO.

Remarkably, Sabatini didn’t tap, but Gonzalez knew the fight was over when he shouted to the referee that he had broken the champion’s arm. The referee, who had the best vantage point of all, swiftly moved in, stopped the contest and freed the injured Sabatini, who looked down at his contorted arm seemingly more in disappointment than immediate pain.

Medics quickly entered the cage to assess Sabatini’s injury, which was later diagnosed as a suspected dislocated shoulder and elbow. The full extent of his injuries will be discovered when he receives further evaluation next week, but it’s fair to say he’s going to be out of action for a few weeks, at least.

Yup, when Hughes tried taking Georges' arm home with him and St Pierre tapped with 1 second left in the round.

A train couldn't finish Matt Hughes.  But GSP did, twice.

GSP Bless
