Alan Patrick has pulled out of 179 with one of the most horrific horror broken jaw stories ever. You can see the gruesome image here, but you might not want to, it is pretty gross. Patrick, an undefeated Brazilian, was training when he took a knee directly to the jaw. The result was an “incomplete fracture.”
“I was training and was hit by a knee. I was using a mouthguard, but it hit the bottom of my mouth,” Patrick told Sherdog.com. “I have never been hit by such a knee before. It went right into my chin. Now, I will have to put a titanium plate on my chin. If I wasn’t going to be hit anymore, I wouldn’t have to do it, but as a fighter, I have to be cautious.”
That is a very optimistic way to look at such a devastating injury. He just needs a titanium plate. You know, for caution’s sake.
In case you missed Xplode Fight Series: Tidal Wave over the weekend, here is Christine Stanley’s incredible, flying, spinning head kick knockout of Katie Anita Runyan. A more suitable title would be: B**** Gets Knocked the F*** Out by Flying, Spinning Head Kick.
With the win, Stanley improves to 3-1 in her career.
Ronda Rousey appeared on a FOX Sports 1 program yesterday to promote Expendables 3. While she was there, she went outside and doused herself in ice water. (This is part of the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.) She then challenged Dana White, Sylvester Stallone and Gina Carano to do the same.
MMA fighter War Machine (née Jon Koppenhaver) is wanted by the Las Vegas Police Department on seven charges, reports TMZ on Monday evening. This news comes after his ex-girlfriend, adult film star Christy Mack posted a chilling account and graphic pictures to her Twitter account detailing a beating she allegedly sustained at the hands of War Machine last week.
Mack writes that she broke 18 bones around her eyes, a broken nose, lost (and broke) teeth and suffered a ruptured liver when War Machine showed up at her home last Friday. She also has slurred speech and cannot see out of her left eye. The full, beyond-stomach turning statement from Mack:
She also posted pictures from her hospital bed that are very graphic.
Cormier: I wish they would let me next door so I can spit in your f–king face.
Jones: You know I would absolutely kill you if you ever did something like that, right?
Cormier: You could never kill me.
Jones: Oh, I bet you I could.
Cormier: Then you should try, Jon. You really should try, Jon.
Jones: I will literally kill you if you spit in my face. Literally kill you.
Cormier: Let’s try that, Jon.
Jones: I’m not saying I would fight you. I said I would kill you if you do some silly sh-t like that.
It’s not 100% clear whether all of this stuff is scripted for publicity reasons, similar to what wrestling does, or real, but nonetheless, this is going to be the fight of the year. The match is scheduled for September 27th.
