    His arm was bent back at a sick angle, the same angle that broke nogerias elbow and tore his shoulder ligaments. But sheilds did not seem seriously injured, how come?

    1) not quite the same angle.

    2) greater shoulder flexibility

    A kimura that far hurts, but that's not the breaking/tearing/dislocating point

    He's probably feeling it today, maybe not so much when you got all the adrenaline going in the fight.

    Because contrary to what the butthurt American Shields fans say, Palhares never intended on breaking his arm. That's why he could use that same arm one second later to cowardly sucker punch Rousimar.

    Because Palhares is a kind human being who did everything not to hurt him:)

    This one nails it.
    Lauzon could learn from him, judging from how sadistic he was against Gomi.
