Brandon Vera's very broken nose

by Michael David Smith | source:

Brandon Vera's broken nose in his loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 125 on Saturday night has to go down as one of the ugliest injuries in UFC history.

It's certainly not the most serious injury -- there have been ugly broken legs in the Octagon, and plenty of fighters have been knocked unconscious -- but in terms of the way the injury looks, Vera's nose is about as bad as a UFC injury gets. When a close-up of Vera's face after the fight was shown on the big screen at the MGM Grand, the crowd gasped and then applauded Vera just for being tough enough to stick it out and finish the fight after he had been disfigured. Even Silva applauded, while Vera took a bow.

Not that I trust someone as insane looking as Thiago, but he did say that "45 days before my fight with Vera I re-injured my back." Thats why he was taking banned substances, well thats why according to him, and he admitted to switching the urine samples or w/e too make it look like he didn't cheat. Anyway maybe hes healthy and isn't juicing to make his back feel better. Maybe...
