Gross Photo of the Day: Ross Pearson’s Kirby-esque (Yet Somehow Not Broken) Foot From UFC on FUEL 9

Sometime after he had finished spoiling Ryan Couture’s UFC debut at UFC on FUEL 9, it was revealed that TUF 9 winner and TUF: Smashes¬†coach Ross Pearson had allegedly broken his foot warming up. Obviously fearing that those namby pamby Swedes would pull him from the fight, Pearson opted to keep his injury quiet until the fight was over, a strategy¬†commonly known in the fight game as “Ortizing.” The main difference between Pearson and Ortiz being that Pearson saves his complaints for fights he actually wins.

And although it was later revealed that Pearson did not in fact break his foot, he recently tweeted the above image to prove that he wasn’t exactly telling porky pies either. It’s not often that a foot swells up so bad that it forms a cankle, so we must applaud Pearson for his grit and determination in not only fighting with such a disadvantage, but finishing a tough dude like Couture in the process.

I mean, just look at that thing. It looks like what I imagine Rosie O’Donnell’s inner thighs look like. It looks like someone stuffed a stocking with ground beef and threw it at a red birch tree. It looks like Kirby took a particularly vicious beating on the Planet Zebes level of Super Smash Brothers.¬†

This looks like the kind of cankle you're apt to see attached to someone riding an electric scooter at Walmart.

@The12ozCurls: Yeah, and if I cover your nose and mouth for long enough it looks like this website will improve significantly.

I had this happen to me in a amateur fight kicking dudes elbow in 1st round. Not fun once i started really feeling it towards end of 3rd round. Its a severe sprain in the instep of your ankle/foot tearing the ligament tissue. He'll be good next week, just experiencing moments of pain when you move certain ways

Must have really smashed his foot into that elbow

@JJ you spend a lot of time imagining what Rosie O'Donnell's thighs look like?

If you cover his toes & ankle, it looks like an expired loaf of bread.

Doesn't look expired to me! Now excuse me, I've got diarrhea to attend to...
