There isn’t much to see right now in the Pittsburgh vs. Miami game as the Hurricanes have dominated the Panthers from the opening snap and lead 17-3 in the fourth quarter. Overall, it’s been a pretty boring game. If gnarly injuries are your thing and you’re watching this game, you probably woke up when Pittsburgh linebacker Dan Mason went down with a gruesome-looking knee injury. Mason dislocated his knee and the trainers weren’t able to re-set it on the field. He had to be carted off.
It’s not nearly as bad as having a bull’s horn gore you through your chin and out your mouth, but what happened to MMA fighter Shigeyuki Uchiyama in Japan on Friday was still pretty gnarly. Uchiyama was fighting Masaya Takita when he went for a takedown and the two went through the ropes. Somehow Uchiyama wound up having part of his cauliflower ear torn off and here are the pictures courtesy of Daniel Herbertson of Fanhouse:
