WATCH: UFC FIGHTER MATT MITRIONE SUFFERS GRUESOME EYE INJURY AFTER ILLEGAL POKES BY TRAVIS BROWNE
This could be the NASTIEST looking face injury in the history of the UFC.
Matt Mitrione seemed to have grown a third eye during his recent match against Ronda Rousey’s boyfriend, Travis Browne. The fight was stopped in the third after Browne poured on the punches to Mitrione’s face.
But the real damage was already done earlier on as Browne, not once, but TWICE, illegally finger poked Mitrione which is the likely reason Matt ended up getting this massive eye injury that left viewers at home gasping.
If you saw this fight at the bar then you know the crowd reaction when they showed his eye on the big screen. Beers were literally being spewed out of patrons mouths. One guy I saw hurled up his recently eaten nachos.
As for Browne, the controversy mounts, as first he leaves his wife for Rousey and now he’s in the cage doling out eye pokes.
Maybe not intentional, but if you’re a pro you need to get that under control or else you are going to cause very, very serious harm.
Nevertheless, Brown responded with the following: “You know, it’s a win – and it’s a win against a very unorthodox, tricky kind of guy. It was a kind of funky fight.
It’s kind of hard to look good against that guy. People can’t smash my dreams, so they try to assassinate my character. That’s what people do what aren’t comfortable with themselves.”
Take a look at what caused the guy next to me to spit up his nachos at the bar:
