"Good stoppage.... Although I wanted a 3rd round, MRI just confirmed multiple fractures above the eye and nose."
-Kyle Kingsbury, via Twitter

"Kingsbu" was mauled in the first round of his fight with Jimi Manuwa at UFC on FUEL TV 5. After the fight was stopped by the ringside physician between the second and third rounds because his left eye was swollen shut, he wisely sought medical intention.

It was so bad that by the time "Kingsbu" somehow managed to come out for the second round, he was fighting with a broken face. That's right, Manuwa -- who was actually a body builder before turning to mixed martial arts (MMA) several years ago -- was hurling bone-breaking strikes that most likely would have stopped large livestock.

But, not the hulking 6'4" Kingsbury, who took a lickin' and kept on tickin.' The American Kickboxing Academy (AKA)-trained fighter would have even come out for a third and final round had the ringside physician not rightfully called a halt to the 205-pound battle.

And just think, Some fans called for a 3rd fucking round. Thats the problem in this sport. Fighter safety should be paramount. Fuck being a "warrior". Kingbury's Corner should have stopped it before the Doctor did.

Get Well, Kyle!

Not surprising. Looked like he was wearing a mask by the end of the fight.

The way that thing turned purple so fast, I figured it was his orbital that broke.

Get Well, Kyle!

Agreed, man. Agreed. I don't think Kyle wanted to answer the second bell, but showed great heart and determination by just continuing to listen to his corner.

So Much of this!

Kyle wanted out in the 1st but the ref didnt step in so he continued. Kyle is tough as nails. He just needs to really improve his MMA game.

Kingsbu is a beast though. He took a ton of punishment and kept going.

Kyle more than likely would have won the third round and he definitely won the second... but that 1st round was probably a 10-8 round for Manuwa, so it would have ended in a draw anyway

After rewatching the 1st round, I think it was that kick that did most of the damage.

Kyle ducked down to waist level after eating a punch and Manuwa blasted him with a soccer kick square on the left-side of his face

Kingsbury has heart and a great chin for sure. Its funny they didn't stop the Koscheck/GSP fight in similar circumstances, I don't really recall but Kos's eye must have been shut before the end of the fight right?

They were in Canada for that one. Canadians wanted Kos to pay. Phone Post

Yea. Kos is easily my least favorite active fighter, but even I was cringing watching that one. Huge respect for the fact that he was able to take that kind of punishment but he's damn lucky he didn't get some permanent damage there... Phone Post

They need to take care of him he will probably be out a while. This is one of those times the UFC insurance comes in handy I bet.

"JBJ will surely dick tuck him in the future."
Someone always has to ruin a good thread with some really stupid shit.

Kyle is a stud. Every time he got hurt and went down, Manuaw turned away for the stand-up, and Kyle stood up immediately. A lot of other fighters in that situation will be intentionally slow to get up.
