Ibrahimovic reveals details of Onyewu brawl

Oguchi Onyewu 1 (AP)

It was a fight that we didn't hear many details about, but given the players involved, it figured to be a serious scuffle.

Now we know just how serious.

Just days after the one-year anniversary of the Oguchi Onyewu-Zlatan Ibrahimovic fight, details have surfaced about the highly-publicized brawl that left one of the combatants with a broken rib.

In his autobiography, "I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic," the Swedish international reveals that Onyewu landed a blow that broke the forward's rib, an injury that AC Milan never made public. Ibrahimovic says the two hulking players "were close to killing each other," and that it took about a dozen players and staff members to break up the fight that occurred after a rough tackle during a scrimmage.

What do you think of this story? Impressed with Onyewu winning a fight against a black belt in Tae Kwon Do? Can you see Onyewu turning to a career in the UFC?
