Adam Martin - August 12, 2019

Welterweight Mike Perry’s broken nose was arguably not the most gruesome injury suffered at UFC Uruguay. In a flyweight bout on the preliminary card, Rogerio Bontorin delivered a horrible cut to the face of Raulian Paiva, leading to the doctor to stop the fight in the first round. Paiva was obviously upset the fight was stopped, but the doctor made a good call considering how deep the cut was. The cut was in a very vulnerable spot right above his right eye, which would obviously hinder his ability to fight. The day after the fight, the UFC flyweight contender took to social media to thank the doctors for fixing his cut.
