UFC 180 took place over the weekend and Leslie Smith lost more than just her bout with Jessica Eye.
The fighter’s cauliflower ear burst open after a punch from her opponent, which ultimately led to the fight being stopped as the injury worsened. An image of the horrendous injury was tweeted by the female fighter after the defeat.
I took a picture of my ear. https://t.co/vujAusstDA

However, it was not all doom and gloom for Smith, as wrestling legend Mick Foley, a.k.a. Mankind offered some kind words to the fighter.
