Is that...is that Raulian Paiva's brain? Like, out there and exposed for all to see?

Well, no. That's not what occurred. But what actually did take place during prelim action against Rogerio Bontorin at UFC Fight Night Montevideo on Saturday was a vicious, visceral spectacle. If this isn't your Eye Cut of the Year in mixed martial arts, I don't know what is.

Are you surprised that the referee decided that this fight couldn't continue? No. You aren't. Bontorin busted Paiva's dome wide, WIDE open. You have to call it by TKO. No more, man. That knee was just too much.

Yeah, buddy.

Game over.

Hey, if Boss Man Dana likes it, it can't be such a bad thing.

Best loss ever, Raulian. Right?
