UFC Uruguay: Mike Perry’s shattered nose and Raulian Pavia’s eyebrow cut are absolutely gruesome

first_imgThat …. may just be a broken nose. #UFCUruguay pic.twitter.com/ocHv2EP3mU— UFC (@ufc) August 11, 2019 😱😱😱 @PlatinumPerry’s nose! #UFCUruguay pic.twitter.com/wZoVioBlFf— UFC Canada (@UFC_CA) August 11, 2019 The gruesome injury paved the way for Luque to get the split decision over Perry by the scores of 29-28, 29-28 and 28-29. And that was one of two ghastly injuries on the night, as Raulian Pavia suffered this unreal gash on his eyebrow in his loss to Rogerio Bontorin during the prelims earlier in the evening. That’s a beauty!!! ESPN+ pic.twitter.com/4K2WWKK16H— Dana White (@danawhite) August 10, 2019 Not for the weak at heart whatsoever. The UFC Uruguay co-main event between Vicente Luque and Mike Perry was already a war Saturday night.But the all-action fight erupted into an instant blood bath during the third round, when Luque caught Perry flush with a flying knee that shattered his nose, leaving it absolutely mangled in easily one of the worst broken noses you’ll ever see.last_img read more
