Matt Mitrione got messed up pretty badly on Sunday night. I mean, of course he did – two eye gouges and then a fist to that same eye, courtesy of Travis Browne at UFC Fight Night 81 – will do that to you. Mitrione left the cage with a eye hidden by a gigantic swelling bubble of bruised flesh.
It was nasty.
And the postfight pic from the hospital told a tale of a broken orbital bone, which… ugh.
But there’s good news to report. A couple days after the fact and the TUF vet is starting to look human again.
Thank goodness. No one needs to look like a monster.
Guess who’s got 2 eyes again! A great big Hell yes to binocular fusion! pic.twitter.com/jjqoI12Dvj
