Ricardo Romero has his jaw broken and wired shut following win over Seth Petruzelli

July 6, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

UFC light heavyweight newcomer, Ricardo Romero revealed he had his jaw broken on Saturday night by Seth Petruzelli in the first round of their UFC 116 clash in Las Vegas, Nevada, resulting in the Brazilian having it wired shut so that it can heal.

The tough-as-nails fighter also reveals he sustained a sprained knee and a severely strained pectoral muscle, all picked up in that beat down he received in the opening five minutes from “The Silverback”.

Romero rallied in the second round despite all the injuries and managed to reverse his fortunes, gaining top position and locking up a sickening armbar which forced Petruzelli to scream with pain.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
