Gnarly Photos of the Day: Mark Hunt’s Broken Toe, Donald Cerrone’s Gashed-Up Elbow

UFC 160 may have been the bloodiest, ugliest UFC event since “Fight for the Troops” in 2008. MMAJunkie has a gallery of gory photo-highlights that you should check out if you have the stomach for that sort of thing, but we wanted to pass along a couple gruesome shots in particular.

Above, you’ll see the destroyed toe of Mark Hunt, who says he broke the piggy during the first round of his co-main event fight against Junior Dos Santos. As Hunt wrote on his Facebook fan page: “Thanks for the support apologies about the result junior was to slick for me. Got a broken toe first round and had no movement, but like i said before if i am going out i am out on my back thanks again 1luv.”

And “go out on his back” he certainly did.

After the jump: Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone shows off the literal aftermath of figuratively breaking his elbow off in KJ Noons‘s ass.

Jon Jones’s Toe Wasn’t Actually Broken (?!); Champ Will Be Ready for Action in 6-8 Weeks


(‘Tis but a scratch.)

Despite initial assumptions that Jon Jones suffered a compound fracture of his left big toe during his UFC 159 title defense against Chael Sonnen, the injury was later determined to be a dislocation. (You know, kind of like how Miesha Tate didn’t actually get her arm snapped in half by Ronda Rousey, despite all visual evidence to the contrary.) Dr. Robert Klapper, Chief Orthopedic Surgeon at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, appeared on yesterday’s installment of UFC Tonight to explain Jones’s injury, and give his insight on the recovery process, which doesn’t sound so bad, considering how ugly things looked on Saturday.

The rehab involves, number one, you put [the toe] back into place,” Klapper said. “Line it up again. Wash out the joint because there’s lots of bad bacteria on that mat, and you need to make sure there’s no infection. The rehabilitation is just let things scar down, which they will. Because there’s no fracture of the bone — it’s just a dislocation — in six weeks it’s healed, then you start range of motion and strengthening. Back to fighting, six to eight weeks.”

Alright, so Bones is out of action for two months, tops, which means that Lyoto Machida’s proposed #1 contender bout against Alexander Gustafsson might not be necessary after all. Condolences, Lyoto.

Anthony Perosh Gets Big Toe Damn Near Ripped Off, Will Miss UFC on FX 6 Fight With Joey Beltran [GROSS]


(Censored version via LarryBrownSports)

After suffering a gruesome injury to his big toe in training, UFC light-heavyweight Anthony Perosh will not be making his scheduled date with Joey Beltran at UFC on FX 6 (December 15th; Queensland, Australia). The news was first reported by Australian journalist Adam Ireland, who tweeted this horrible, uncensored look at the toe-break with the following explanation:

Anthony had surgery a few days ago. No replacement named by the @ufc yet…The injury happened when Anthony attempted a routine takedown and his toe got stuck in/between 2 mats…Got off the phone to an understandably upset Anthony half an hour ago fellas – surgery, pins, the works…@AnthonyPerosh will revisit the surgeon tomorrow with an aim to be training again in 4-6 weeks.

Perosh, who is coming off a brutal seven-second knockout loss to Ryan Jimmo, now joins Neil Melanson and Miguel Torres’s homeboy in the Jacked-Up Toe Hall of Fame. Beltran has lost his last three fights in the UFC, but won a Fight of the Night award in his most recent decision loss to James Te-Huna at UFC on Fuel: Munoz vs. Weidman. We’ll let you know if the Mexecutioner gets a new dance partner for the 12/15 card. Update: Igor Pokrajac will step in for Perosh.

After the jump: Our brave attempt to turn Anthony Perosh’s disgusting broken toe into an inspirational Internet meme.
