UFC 175 was a great card, but its gravitas was lessened if you were among the squeamish.
We’ll start off with the least serious injury first: Ronda Rousey’s hand stitches.
Conceptualizing how Ronda Rousey could’ve possibly gotten injured in her 16-second OBLITERATION of Alexis Davis is beyond the mental faculties of mid-tier MMA bloggers. Somehow it happened though. Rousey hurt her hand, and even had stitches on it by the end of the right. Joe Rogan stated this was why she couldn’t headline UFC 176 in August.
Here are two photos of the injury that have been circulating on Twitter:
The injury was worse than the picture shows (there was a close-up of the bone jutting out of the skin during the live broadcast but there doesn’t appear to be a screenshot…yet). The best part is that Hall’s cornermen bullied the doctor into not doing anything about Hall’s clearly f*cked up toe when he checked it out between rounds. Actually, scratch that, the best part was Hall dancing around with a bone sticking out of his foot and actually kicking with that leg. That took bravado and some serious pain tolerance–and it’s those attributes that earned him a decision win over Thiago Santos.
We’ll post any more pics as they surface. Until then, enjoy your Sunday, Potato Nation.
