Soa Palelei Injured Heading Into UFC 164 Bout


Soa Palelei strained his rib a week before yesterday’s UFC 164, but wasn’t pulling out. After taking a shot to the stomach in round one, Palelei was visibly weak and affected.

“He hit me with a knee to the rib and I think it cracked,” said Palelei to MMA Fighting. “It slowed me down, but I was happy to get the win and keep going to give a better performance.”

Palelei was returning to the UFC, having fought only once for them in 2007.
