Stefan Struves fractured jaw/cheek
Last night Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt played rock'em sock'em robots for nearly fifteen minutes before Hunt finally tagged and bagged the seven footer with a left hook from hell. That left hook did some serious damage, and we've got the X-Ray from Japan that shows it. It looks like something from the future, and frankly, scares me to look at. It was posted by the man himself, Stefan Struve, who's currently in Japan enjoying some hospital hospitality and painkillers.
We all at HOV hope he has a speedy recovery, and is back in the Octagon doing his thing in a timely manner.
I ment to say, look at that jaw! Painkillers are having me tripping lol twitter.com/StefanStruve/s…

It looked good on paper. Never judge a book by its cover. Insert another predictable idiom here. After Hyun Gyu Lim made his presence felt it turned out to be a pretty disappointing night in terms of violence. 8 straight decisions ;ater it was up to the big boys to close things out with a bang. Saying they did just fine. would be an understatement. This was one of the exciting closes...
