    Fighters that have had rib injuries in a fight and lost are Will Brooks, BJ Penn, Anthony Pettis, and Kalib Starnes.

    I may be wrong but I always felt like he faked being hurt.

    What do you mean? Scott Smith was injured to his ribs and he won and finished a UFC fight. He fell over at the end of the fight in pain, it wasn't a joke or a fake.

    Just rewatched Smith/Sell, because I wanted to be sure. https://www.ufc.tv/video/scott-smith-vs-pete-sell-tuf-4-finale

    One of my favorite fights no one talks about. I enjoyed them high fiving and laughing and having a good time with each other, it made it more enjoyable to me.

    Few thoughts - Goldie said the words "Hang with the boys" so he clearly beat Cody to the punch. Rogan cursed on the air, and they had to bleep it. Big John looked so young there, all babyfaced like that.

    And yes, Smith got blasted to the body, could be liver, could be ribs, and bent over. He threw that one last ditch punch and if he missed, he would have been done with. He rolled over after he hit the ground and writhed on the ground pointing at his body after it was over. It was definitely an injury of some sort, he immediately reacted with pain. Could have been the liver shot shutting things down, or could have been a broken. Hard to say. I'm not a doctor. Rogan said "It might have been a broken rib", and then "Right on the floating rib". Smith was on the ground for a minute or two after, as the doctors tended to him.

    So, in sum, even Joe Rogan thought it was a broken rib, which would be defined as a rib injury, and Scott Smith, with a rib injury, is an MMA fighter that won and finished a UFC fight with "injured ribs".

    I did too, and then I learned about liver shots. Check out Bas Rutten in your spare time.

    No. Incorrect. It's a liver shot. You get hit hard to liver, your body folds in half. Look up Bas Rutten or go train some Muay Thai or kickboxing.

    Rob Emerson got a draw when he tapped due to his ribs being fucked, but Maynard had KOed himself with the slam.
    edit: or a no contest. remembered it wrong.
