SAN JOSE -- Both Frank Shamrock and wife Amy ended up in San Jose's Valley Medical Center on Saturday night.

Frank Shamrock went to the hospital for the treatment of injuries suffered during his Strikeforce middleweight title loss to Cung Le, including what is believed to be a broken right forearm.

Amy Shamrock, who is pregnant with the couple's first child, went into labor during the match and was rushed to the facility as well.

Frank Shamrock also has a 19-year old son from a previous marriage.

Update, 10 p.m. Pacific: As it turns out, Mrs. Shamrock, who isn't due until May, thought she went into labor but actually didn't. She was released from the hospital after the false alarm.

Update, 1 a.m. Pacific: Frank Shamrock's right forearm was broken in two; he'll undergo surgery and have a plate inserted in his arm Sunday.

Monday update: Shamrock underwent a five-hour operation Sunday to put in a plate and six screws for a complete break of the ulna bone in his right forearm.  Shamrock believes the break took place during the second round of the fight, but a kick in the third round worsened it and the arm was at that point useless, so he couldn't continue the fight.
