Even in a sport that routinely sees broken bones and open cuts, UFC fighter Gabriel Benitez suffered one of the nastiest injuries you'll ever see. Benitez's fight Wednesday night against Omar Morales in Jacksonville ended up splitting his leg open right at his shin, giving us a truly gory and grotesque image.
Be warned. This video is EXTREMELY graphic. If you are squeamish, please DO NOT look. You've been warned. Seriouslyo
Not only was "Moggly" Benitez still standing, but he managed to fight while having a gash several inches deep on his leg. He even threw kicks!
You can't say he didn't want to win.
Benitez lost for the third time in five tries. Morales came out with the victory, but Benitez's sacrifice has to push this into Fight of the Night territory.
Benitez might not have come out on top, but the fact he was even able to stand and walk around with an open would leaking blood like that proves that this is one of the toughest guys to ever get into the Octagon. Yikes.
