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.

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."

No big deal. Just a couple of pokes.

Yes, everyone's thinking the same thing as Matt Mitrione here. Thank you, UFC. Very reasonable sport!

But don't worry, Mitrione's looking a lot better already. Oh sorry, meant to say "worry." Definitely worry. This is still horrifying.
