Stefan Struve Joins the Split-Lip Hall of Fame

(Photo courtesy of MMAMania)

Stefan Struve isn’t a stranger to getting his face bloodied. His preliminary card match against Christian Morecraft at UFC 117 was no different, as the UFC newbie turned Struve’s lip into a busted, swollen mess during the lopsided first round. Like a champion, Struve fought back in the second and scored a brutal KO stoppage. The performance earned Stefan a spot in the ultra-exclusive ranks of the MMA Split Lip Hall of Fame. More notable members are after the jump…

    Loughran's was friggin brutal. Any time a fight is stopped because you have a busted lip it's got to be nasty.

    Bader??? Someone doesn't know their fighters, AND didn't see the names of each person under their pic. Not sayin any names tho.

    I got smacked in the mouth a couple of years back and split my top lip completely in half. The worst bit was having the stitches put in and subsequently taken out. Glad the girl who did it was a pro as there’s no scarring what so ever. Tightly stitched lips hurt real bad and there’s a lot of blood.

    My favorite was Kurt Pelligrino's, does that one fall into th lip category? It was very close if not and deserves honorable mention status. All those guys look like they go their "ass kicked" by chael with those busted up lips.
  9. Strife Says:

    Tue, 08/10/10 - 08:05

    Hey, what about Pelligrino? He caught a savage knee from Alberto Crane and his teeth went through his lip. You gotta add it

    Bat Man! His teef were stickin out his bottom lip if I remember correctly. Definitely should be on here, my fav too.

    What about pelligrino's? Man his was seriously bad. You have to add this on here. ¬_¬

    Is there a better one of the last one? Doesn't look that clear on this rubbish monitor.

    You have all been tricked; it is all just another elaborate ad campaign just like when Chuck was working out naked. Chapstick has pulled a fast one on us all.

    Also whats the big deal, this is what Grey Maynards lips and junk look like constantly.

    Oh christ. That definitely split more than mine did. I bet those stitches hurt going in.

    While we're including facial injuries outside the lips, I nominate the vagina on the forehead of Miguel Torres that was revealed by Joseph Benavidez's elbow.

    Yea that lip is bad, but do see his eyes? That boy will be in a retirement community by the time he's 30 if he doesn't get better defense. I read someone type that Struve is a modern-day Big Nog, I agree, that is no badge of honor if you ask me, even for a fighter. Someone must of came up with this before me but if not, you heard it here first: A good-looking fighter is typically a winning-fighter. Ken Shamrock looked mashed even before his Tito fight; Anderson Silva took abuse for 23 minutes and barely looks touched; Struve will have a leather face by age 25 at this rate. Big Nog talks like my grandpa and Nog's like only 34 or something. God-bless these guys and gals. P.S. Cyborg does NOT count and you know it. You all know what I mean by "good-looking." Beacause Akiyama didn't look so sexy after his last fight.

    Bader - Hamill . . . who cares? All wrestlers look the same to me.
  24. RwilsonR Says:

    Tue, 08/10/10 - 10:14

    Speaking of all looking the same... Looking at those pictures and the guys on that list above, I'm reminded of the old joke about the 3 things you can't give to a black guy - a black eye, a FAT LIP, and a job.

    Struve's eyes just look like that because he's Dutch. That's not a legalized weed joke, it's just the same sleepy look I've observed from every cartoon-voiced goofball, all three of which turned out to be Dutch.
  27. macreadysshack Says:

    Tue, 08/10/10 - 11:14

    Hey, Charming Charlie, I think you might be onto something. Badr Hari has those eyes, Uberreem does, too. I think Bas' eyes might look like that, too, if he wasn't always on crack.
  28. El Guapo Says:

    Tue, 08/10/10 - 11:31

    Actually, you CAN give 'em a job. Gettting them to sho.. Ahhhh, nevermind. On a somewhat related note, did you guys notice Struve pretend like he was gonna touch gloves to start the 2nd round and then fire a kick-right cross combo? Coulda swore the crowd reacted, too.
  29. Dr. Says:

    Tue, 08/10/10 - 12:09

    @ El Guapo: Yeah, I saw that and the UFC did their best to not replay it. It was Christian's fault for wanting to touch gloves at the start of the 2nd round but Struve is one cheap-ass prick. You could tell it pissed off Christian and he swung away angrily, thus leading to the exposed jaw. I can't stand the douchebag Struve and especially how he acted afterwards.

    k-onda did you not see the last picture? His "teef" weren't sticking thru his lip man.
  31. fatbellyfrank Says:

    Tue, 08/10/10 - 04:04

    @ El Guapo, yeah I mentioned at the time it looked like a bitch move at glove tap for round two, so the lip is fair payback for that shit, fucken douche bags who pull that shit should get docked points or something
