UFC Stefan Struve Jaw

Have you ever seen what a broken jaw looks like on an X-ray? If not, no worries because UFC heavyweight Stefan Struve posted a picture of his busted beak following Saturday’s vicious TKO loss to Mark Hunt.

“Look at that jaw! Painkillers are having me tripping lol,” Struve tweeted along with the pic above. “Wired my jaw in the hospital here and flying back to get surgery as soon as we land monday in Holland.”

Struve was rocked so badly in the third round that he initially thought Hunt had knocked his tooth loose. He wanted to spit his Chicklet out and continue fighting until he realized his jaw was actually broken.

“Skyscraper” dropped his professional record to 25-6 following his latest hiccup. The 25-year-old’s last four losses have come via some form of knockout.

Hunt not only left Japan with the highlight reel victory, but he also scored an extra $50,000 for ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors.

Struve, meanwhile, once again learned the hard way that the face-to-fist defense is not the business.
