On Sunday night, Matt Mitrione faced off against Travis Browne at UFC's Fight Night Boston and—surprise!—the hand-to-hand combat resulted in a truly brutal injury, albeit one that Mitrione seems like he'll recover from with no long-term damage. WARNING: the images below are graphic. Really, really graphic and gross.
UFC reacted with three poignant emojis and one quick appeal to the lord.
Since everyone tunes in to UFC to see what a broken orbital floor looks like, well, here it is. What caused it? In the words of the almost-blinded Matt Mitrione, you can blame "eye pokes."
I'm sorry I lost tonight. If this was my last fight, I wanted to go out on my shield. The eye pokes had an effect but things happen— Matt Mitrione (@mattmitrione) January 18, 2016
