Denis Lebedev had his eye battered by Guillermo Jones

Denis Lebedev eye

Denis Lebedev (25-2, 19 KOs) was defeated by Guillermo Jones (39-3-2, 31 KOs) by 11th-round KO in their WBA cruiserweight title fight in Crocus City Hall in Moscow on Friday, and it was apparently a pretty ugly show.

ESPN’s Dan Rafael was covering the fight and called it a fight of the year candidate. He says Lebedev suffered a cut above his right eye in the first round and that it became an absolute mess after that. Rafael continued to wonder how Lebedev was able to fight with his eye in such bad shape and why the fight wasn’t stopped.

After seeing the pictures, we’re wondering the same thing.

Despite the bad condition of his eye, Lebedev apparently was still able to hit Jones before going down for good in the 11th.

Here’s what the eye looked like before the 11th round began:

Fighter Anthony Perosh suffered one of the nastiest broken toes ever (Picture)

Australian fighter Anthony Perosh was scheduled to fight on the preliminary card for UFC on FX 6 in December, but that’s no longer happening. You see, poor Anthony got the big toe on his left foot stuck in between two mats while attempting a takedown during training recently, and he suffered a nasty broken toe. And when we say broken toe, we don’t mean one of those wimpy fractures where a piece of the bone chipped off. Oh no. We mean that his toe was partially severed like it was hacked off with a pair of gardening shears.

Australian reporter Adam Ireland says that Perosh had surgery a few days ago.

The uncensored version of the photo is below. If you don’t like disgusting injuries, don’t look below.

MMA Fighter Ryan McGillivray Has a Nasty Broken Nose (Picture)

Squeamish people beware. Since I chose not to put the picture after the jump, that warning will probably come too late.  Sorry.  Of all the nasty injuries we have shown you here on LBS, nothing can really stack up to the overall gruesomeness of injuries suffered in the octagon.  As far as how the following injury stacks up against this dangling toe, this torn off ear, or this other torn off ear, you’ll have to be the judge.  Check out the Ryan McGillivray broken nose picture, courtesy of Deadspin:

McGIllivray, who was on the last season of The Ultimate Fighter, suffered the injury during training. I suppose any injury that allows you to keep the affected extremity is a victory, but that still looks ridiculously nasty.  We thought Ben Roethlisberger’s broken nose and Manu Ginobli’s crooked beak were brutal, but McGillivray puts them to shame.  Glad he’s all smiles, because I’d probably be crying.

The Most Disgusting Toe Injury You Will Ever See (from Miguel Torres’ MMA Gym)

On Friday we passed along the story of Xtreme Couture trainer Neil Melanson who had his toe amputated instead of missing a year of training. Melanson had his toe removed by choice. What happened at Miguel Torres’ gym in Indiana was by accident. First, we present you the censored version of the photo because we warn you, it is the most disgusting toe injury you will ever see.

Now, if you can stomach it (this picture can make you vomit), we present the uncensored photo via Miguel Torres’ twitter account:

Mark Hominick Picture After Losing Jose Aldo Fight

Mark Hominick had one of the worst hematomas this side of Hasim Rahman following his fight with Jose Aldo Saturday night. Hominick literally had a second head growing like that Mike’s Hard Lemonade commercial. Well a few days after their fight, fans were demanding a picture of Hominick’s battle wounds and he finally obliged. Here’s the picture he posted on his twitter via 5th Round:

The guy still looks like he went about 25 minutes with Jose Aldo, but at least the forehead looks clean. Honestly though, I thought Hominick fought a great fight against Aldo and that he deserves a rematch. Many people are saying Aldo should fight Kenny Florian, and Dana White is saying Chad Mendes is likely next, but why not a rematch?

Hominick started pounding on Aldo in the fifth round and clearly was outlasting him conditioning-wise. I have no reason to believe Hominick wouldn’t give Aldo his best challenge if they were to fight again. Am I crazy in thinking that? Why shouldn’t they have a rematch?

Now the other question I have is who looks worse, Hominick, or GSP?

Picture: GSP’s Eye After Jake Shields Poke

Georges St. Pierre beat Jake Shields in their UFC 129 fight Saturday by unanimous decision. Many critics (and GSP himself) were disappointed he didn’t finish Shields with a knockout or submission, but part of the problem was GSP got poked/punched in the eye and couldn’t see out of it for most of the fight. Doctors initially feared a detached retina when they examined him because they could not see into the eye. At that point you were probably wondering what the freaking eye looked like, and luckily UFC ring girl Arianny Celeste came through with a picture:

That looks pretty darn bad and it’s no surprise GSP was handed a 60-day medical suspension. I know a lot of folks were disappointed by GSP’s performance, but keep in mind he wasn’t hurt throughout the fight and pretty much dominated things despite not having full vision. As for the folks pushing a Nick Diaz fight, get off of it. There’s only one fight fans should want to see, and it’s GSP vs. Anderson Silva. I know GSP’s team has major concerns about the weight difference, but that’s the one that needs to happen.

Thanks to 5th Round for sharing the link, and how does GSP’s eye compare to Mark Hominick’s injuries?
