We take a look at the damage which at least some UFC fighters receive during their fights. Many fans are generally not aware of what the fighters have to endure. Not only during the fight itself but post fight when the cameras are off. And everyone has gone home safe and sound. This is a reminder of what the fighters go through to keep the fans entertained.
In this video, we get an up close and personal view on the lacerations, bruising and often crazy swelling. That accompanies one of these brutal back and forth drawn out battles. Where as some fighters would fall, there are many in the sport who keep fighting on at all costs. Leaving it to the referee’s and medical to decide if a fighter is able to continue.
The MMA Fighters Invloved
Between the Irish hand grenade Marcus Davis and the beating, he took in his stand-up war with Nate Diaz. Or Chris Tuchscherer who was drafted to take on the knockout walk off specialist Mark Hunt. Current middleweight Champion Michael Bisping. Who in his second fight against Dan Henderson which he actually won. Looked the worst for wear by far of the two.
The former heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez. Who handed not one, but two severe beatings to Junior Dos Santos in both of their title fights. Or veteran fighter Cung Lee who took on Michael Bisping. And suffered one of the severest beatings in the sport.
With so many examples we could keep going. But for now, at least these examples really do show the level of punishment a fighter can take in a full contact MMA fight. Remember they are only using 4oz’s of protection. With nothing between the knees and shins full impact. Brutal yes, barbaric, mmm, yes too. But without a doubt the most exhilarating combat sport on the planet to watch.
