Manager: Silva’s cut only required 3 stitches
That cut – the one changed the course of the fight and left Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva drenched in blood at this past weekend’s UFC 146 event – wasn’t as bad as it looked.
“It wasn’t really a big cut,” Silva’s manager, Alex Davis, told MMAjunkie.com Radio . “It was right between the eyes. It’s a very fleshy part. It bleeds a lot. He’s a big guy, and his head is very well irrigated, so it was a blood bath.
“But it only (needed) three stitches. It wasn’t that bad, but it looked bad on TV.”
