Gruesome injury at TUFF-N-UFF


Mixed Martial Arts is a tough sport where both fighters are trying their best to hurt their opponent enough where the ref stops the bout or submit the other. Sometimes though, the worst injuries can happen when unexpected, such as during a takedown:

At Friday’s night’s Tuff-N-Uff MMA event in Las Vegas, Mike Florio suffered a sickening leg injury when opponent Jim Elmer took him to the mat in the second round. Florio collapsed on his own leg during the sequence, and it resulted in a gruesome open dislocation, with a bone protruding from the skin just above his left ankle.

Tracy Lee of captured the images and provided them to MMAjunkie.

Four-six weeks is a pipe dream for that injury.

  Jeff Meyer at UMC Hospital Michael Florio is the definition of TUFF! He had surgery this morning and is expecting to go home tomorrow. The doctor's say that he'll need 4 to 6 weeks to recover but we hope he takes a bit longer so he can come back even tuffer than ever.

Several UGers were there.   The doctors at TUFF-N-UFF are highly experienced and know what they are doing.

Yeah I think I'm gonna second that.Seeing comments that this was worse than Corey Hill's injury and all I might just let this one slide...then again I'm stupid and will probably click on it later today.Hope the guy fully recovers though, whatever the injury.
