MMA fighter sees UFC move delayed after breaking leg in half during fight

Australian MMA star Jack Becker broke his leg with just seconds in his Eternal lightweight title defense last weekend, which could derail his planned switch to the UFC.

MMA star Jack Becker broke his leg in half following a sickening kick which is now set to delay his planned switch to the UFC.

Becker was defending his lightweight title in MMA promotion Eternal against challenger Aidan Aguilera at the HBF Stadium in Perth. The Australian star had recently signed with the UFC and it was set to be his final outing before making the switch.

However his career plan will now be significantly delayed after a horrifying sequence of events unfolded just seconds into his bout. The pair began the opening round at a fast pace with Aguilera clearly targeting his opponent's left leg by landing some neat inside kicks early on.

The density of bones varies depending on the location in the body and age of the individual. Generally, bones are denser and stronger during young adulthood and gradually lose density as we age.

The density of bones can be measured through a bone mineral density (BMD) test. The test is usually done using a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan. It measures the amount of mineral content, primarily calcium and phosphorus, in a bone segment. The BMD result is compared to a standardized population to get a T-score, which indicates how much the bone density deviates from the average.

The T-score is used to diagnose osteoporosis, a condition where bones become weak and brittle, and are at higher risk of fractures. Generally, BMD measurements are taken at the hip and spine because these are the most commonly fractured sites. 

The average bone density of an adult is around 1.3 g/cm3, but it can vary widely depending on the individual's age, sex, ethnicity, and lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise habits, and smoking status. Higher bone density is associated with better bone health and reduced risk of fracture.
