"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.
