Apparently, American Kickboxing Academy fighters hit opponents too hard.

Standing at a sponsor booth amid bronzed bodybuilders at this past weekend's Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio, Daniel Cormier and teammate Luke Rockhold both were nursing broken hands from previous fights.

Rockhold can now shake hands, confident that iron-gripped fans won't hurt him, but recovery is going longer than he expected. Cormier is a little further along and said he's back to full steam in the gym.

I hope Comier is 100% going into the finale. I think he can win it all.

I hope Cormier is 100% as well, its been delayed long enough. Barnett will be his hardest year to date, not convinced he'll beat Barnett

i would love to see cormier win. i like barnett because he says some funny shit but i dont really like watching him fight. he has never really been a dynamic fighter IMO. i guess i just like the idea of the Olympian coming in as an alternate and winning it all. ill be ok if josh wins too, this whole tournament has kind of lost its luster.
