Rory MacDonald over came a tough first round versus Demian Maia to earn a decision victory at UFC 170, but it was a battle with an avocado that almost caused him to withdraw from the fight:

He said he nearly had to pull out of the fight when he cut himself while trying to slice the famous green fruit.

“I stabbed myself. It was pretty embarrassing,” MacDonald said at the post-event news conference following his win at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. “I couldn’t believe it. I thought I was going to have to pull out of the fight because you could easily hit a tendon. I went to the emergency room, got stitched up, got checked out. Everything’s fine and intact. It went in really far. But it got stitched up, I fought, and everything’s cool.”

MacDonald later posted this picture to Instagram:

Always use a sharp knife, and cut away from the hand, Rory. Away from the hand.

You can't cut away from the hand when halving an avocado. The lesson to learn here is clearly that avocados are too dangerous.

I think this is what he was referring to as "bad technique" in the post presser.

I sink the blade in and rotate the avocado on the still blade.

I did this once. I was using the same kind of small knife, tried to lightly stab the pit/seed to pluck it out, but the seed had a hollow gap in the middle, so the knife went right through with no resistance.

It's a good avocado technique, you just need to use a bigger knife and hit the seed with the flat part of the knife, not the point.

Here is an educational video on the proper avocado technique. He was attempting this, but with the point of a small knife, which was his downfall.

You must have issues.

The proper way to half fruit with a pit is to cut into the fruit with the blade pushed up to the pit, and then to use your hand to ROTATE the fruit until you halve it. This works for fruit without a pit as well.

Why was Rory going shining on that avacado I mean who the fuck impales their fruit to halve it.

God damned newbies!

Posts blood, a knife axe murdering an avacado and a death stare face on Instagram.

Wonders why people think he's a little creepy.

All the avocado pitting critiques are cracking me up.
