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

Monday, November 12, 2012

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.
