Perosh out of Beltran fight with NSFW broken toe, Pokrajac in

source: twitter
 

Many Americans were introduced to Australian culture through the 1980s Crocodile Dundee movies.

The film's signature line was "That's not a knife... THAT'S a knife," as the Paul Hogan character scares off a knife wielding mugger by pulling a Bowie knife out from under his jacket.

 

Australian light heavyweight Anthony Perosh has injured his toe, and is off the UFC on FX 6 prelim card fight with Joey Beltran.

"A toe" you say? He is pulling out of a fight with a hurt toe??!?

Adam Ireland from Australian television's Channel 9 has the image, via Twitter.

THAT'S a broken toe...

Ireland provides further details:
•Anthony had surgery a few days ago. No replacement named by the @ufc yet
•The injury happened when Anthony attempted a routine takedown and his toe got stuck in/between 2 mats
•Got off the phone to an understandably upset Anthony half an hour ago fellas – surgery, pins, the works
•@AnthonyPerosh will revisit the surgeon tomorrow with an aim to be training again in 4-6 weeks.

Pro fighter and UGer Denis Roberts provides an eyewitness account of the accident.

I was there when he did it. I could barely look at it. He sent me pics of it twice today (barf)

He took it like a man though. From his reaction I thought he'd just gotten a muscle cramp or something. Come to think of it, he probably took it better than I did haha

Igor Pokrajac, who is 3-1 his last four fights, has been named as Perosh's replacement.

Let me guess, puzzle mats? fuck those things man, they gotta put a tarp over those bitches or something. I've had my toe get caught, fucking hurts, but no where near as bad as this shit.
