Although the UFC 108 roster went through countless changes, the fighters produced some of the year’s sickest scraps. Unfortunately, seven contestants will be forced to sit the sidelines for injuries sustained in their respective bouts. Dustin Hazelett and Mark Munoz face the longest suspensions as their owies could have them riding the pine for six months.
In case you missed it, Hazelett attempted the face-to-fist defense against Paul Daley’s devastating striking skills and as expected, was unsuccessful. Not only was the Jiu Jitsu specialist knocked completely unconscious, but it appears he may have nasal fractures and an orbital blowout for his troubles.
Speaking of pimp-smacking, Mark Munoz may have whooped Ryan Jensen inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, but the popular Filipino may have busted some bones in his right arm in the process.
