Alistair Overeem suffers one of the most gruesome injuries in UFC history as his lip explodes from a punch


Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Alistair Overeem suffered one of the worst injuries in the history of the company last night in a loss to Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
To make matters worse, he suffered the injury with only 10 seconds to go in the final round of the contest.
A brutal punch from Rozenstruik managed to explode Overeem’s lip and make for one of the most graphic images you’ll see in the fight game.

Overeem suffered a horrific injury on Saturday night
Rozenstruik moved to 10-0 with the big-name victory while Overeem slips to 45-18.
After disappointing losses to top contenders Francis Nagnnou and Curtis Blaydes, 39-year-old Overeem had picked up two victories on the bounce heading into this fight in Washington, DC.
He took to Twitter after his defeat to Rozenstruik to let everyone know he had been stitched up after the fight and everything is fine.
UFC has a long line of nasty injuries in the cage. In fact, England’s own Molly McCann suffered a gruesome eye injury earlier this year at the O2 Arena.
Still, Overeem’s will take some beating.
