Kickboxing star and current World Series Of Fighting competitor Tyrone Spong suffered an horrific Anderson Silva style leg break last night at Glory 15.

In the first round Spong threw a leg kick that was checked by Gokhan Saki’s knee causing his right shin bone to shatter.

Like Silva, the 28 year-old Spong now faces a very lengthy recovery process and is unlikely to be seen back in the cage or ring for a year at the very least.

It’s very unfortunate as Spong had been in great form recently, winning 10 kickboxing bouts in a row, while simultaneously embarking on an MMA career that’s so far seen him go 2-0.

Spong had been set to return to the WSOF cage in July against an as yet unannounced opponent.

Watch the moment Spong’s leg broke in the video below.
