One can generally expect to have to deal with quite an extensive world of hurt as a professional competing in the arena of UFC mixed martial arts, but even by these standards, this has got to be one of the worst injuries ever captured on film. Leslie Smith was involved in a main card fight with her opponent Jessica Eye, when Jessica landed what was to be a fairly devastating right hook. Upon connecting with the side of Leslie’s head, the right hook caused her fighters’ cauliflower ear to explode in one massive bloody mess.
Warning: this video is pretty gross and definitely not for the squeamish:
DAYUM. As a result of the punch Leslie’s ear was left partially torn away from her skull and apparently she didn’t even feel anything when it happened. I’ve got to admit that this is probably the worst UFC injury I’ve ever seen and sure hope that we never have to see anything like this happen in the sport again any time soon. Hopefully Leslie Smith will be back in the ring sooner rather than later.
