Stefan Struve tweets X-ray of jaw


Stefan Struve ‏@StefanStruve

Thanks for the support everybody, I wanted Herb to take the tooth out of my cheek and continue but then it turned out my jaw was broken.

45 minutes to the hospital without painkillers.. Man, please choke me out.. Jaw is hurting like crazy.. :(

Wired my jaw in the hospital here and flying back tomorrow to get surgery as soon as we land monday in Holland, thnx for the great care

Couldn't bring the energy I normally can else I would have definitely moved away from those bombs lol My legs felt like they were 300 pnds

Look at that cheekbone!! :0 @ufc

I ment to say, look at that jaw! Painkillers are having me tripping lol

Flyin home with a face like a balloon

Indeed that's what I thought, and I'm still not sure if by cheek he meen's in the flesh or in the jaw, cause that most recent scan looks like the tooth is jammed down into it...For what it's worth, Struve said this earlier: "Fun fact, well for you guys.. :p Mark broke my jaw about 5 secs before the last 2 punches landed, the last left knocked a tooth in my cheek"

jesus it almost does look like the earlier poster described as far as a tooth being driven down like a wood splitter even though im sure its probably not the case and thought so upon hearing it originally. it looks like a tooth driven down right above the break. i cant even imagine the pain. fucking warrior

Then Dana says: "u will come back u always do. #kingofthecomeback"They went back and forth on twitter, Struve telling Dana how he'd be back and better than ever, Dana telling him how much he admired him for putting it out there like that. Hope to see Stefan come back with a renewed gameplan. Hate to see him fight the way he does with the outcome that typically follows. He's successful, but he needs to utilize his reach and take the fight to the ground for some incredible submissions.

And probably for the most fucked up part:"3 days to find out if I have a hospital bacteria from Japan before they can do surgery on the jaw, wow this is gonna suck!!"

Spelling errors are his, not mine:"I counted on getting surgey today, waiting for another 3 days is gonna suck soooooo bad, this is brutal"

And this is what he posted earlier, just to clear up some of the confusion: "Fun fact, well for you guys.. :p Mark broke my jaw about 5 secs before the last 2 punches landed, the last left knocked a tooth in my cheek"

More stuff:"There is a fire burning inside me since the Fight last saturday, can't wait to let that fire out and show that saturday was not my day!!"

man i didn't thing a jaw break could be this clean, especially not from a punch. struve was complaining about his tooth being out... but it wasn't out... the simple wasn't a place to hold the tooth because it was fracture straight down. crazy. fucking leaping left, dang.
