Jorge Lopez UFC on Fuel TV 3 Broken HandWand Fight Team fighter Jorge Lopez took his second shot at getting a “W” in the Octagon at Tuesday’s UFC on Fuel TV 3 event in Fairfax, Va. And for the second time, he went to a decision, unable to get the judges to see it in his favor.

His UFC on Fuel TV 3 fight against TUF 7 winner Amir Sadollah, however, was a very close affair, leaving many fans crying foul when the split decision leaned to Sadollah’s favor.

Now, a couple days after the fight, it has come to light that he had a pretty good excuse for not being able to take a more dominant role later in the fight, although he’s not making any excuses.

Lopez’s camp confirmed first to MMAWeekly.com on Thursday that the Wanderlei Silva pupil broke his hand in the first round. Again, he didn’t make any excuses, but did provide an x-ray photo, showing the break.

Lopez said he would be unable to punch with the injured hand for at least eight to 12 weeks.

When he does return, though, Lopez is expecting he’ll have one heck of a jab with the other hand.
