Matt Mitrione eye injury is broken orbital floor

We have seen some nasty battle wounds suffered by those involved in combat sports, but the eye injury suffered by Matt Mitrione may be the worst ever.

Mitrione was poked in the eye twice during his fight against Travis Browne for the UFC Fight Night card. Browne said the eye pokes were inadvertent, but they did a lot of damage and made it extremely difficult for Mitrione to compete. He ended up losing by TKO in the third round.

Browne said he apologized for the eye pokes:

Mitrione said after the fight that they bothered him:

OK, now that we got all that out of the way, it’s time to unveil to you the most gruesome eye injury you could imagine. Keep in mind that Mitrione said later that his eye injury was a broken orbital floor. Buckle up, because this is a nasty one.

Holy heck is that gross. It looks like an alien coming out of his eye.

He also hurt his shoulder too.

At least the eye looked slightly better after the fight:

Get well soon, Matt.
