06:06 PM ET 12.17 | If facing Hector Lombard wasn't a tough task already, Rousimar Palhares was also dealing with a broken foot, according to his reps. Palhares injured his right foot, and tore ligaments, from an early kick. He ended up being knocked out in the first round. "One of my kicks hit Lombard's shin below his knee. I heard a snap, and I knew something bad happened. From that moment on, I [started] feeling my foot more and more numb and without strength to walk around the octagon. It was a very complicated situation. I went through something similar in the fight against Jeremy Horn when I broke my hand during the fight," Palhares said.
