PHOTO | The return of Matt Mitrione’s eye

January 20, 2016 9:59 am by Russell Ess

Matt Mitrione’s eye looks to be healing and looking much better than it did immediately after the fight with Travis Browne at UFC Fight Night 81 in Boston on Sunday.

Mitrione posted a photo update after the fight and another at the doctor getting his swollen eye drained. Mitrione found out through doctors that he suffered a broken orbital floor in his controversial fight with Browne where Mitrione suffered two accidental eye pokes, which he feels hindered his abilities to fight to the best of his potential.

Mitrione updated his fans with another photo on Twitter and is able to open his injured eye. The photo reveals that his eye is still severely bruised and will still take a lot of time to heal. It is, however, looking much better than it did immediately after the fight.

Do you think there should be changes in the rules for accidental eye pokes? Share your thoughts in the comments!
