Brad Riddell & Rafael Fiziev had a gruesome battle against each other UFC Vegas 44. Riddell tried his best to hold his ground, but Fiziev emerged victorious via a third-round knockout administrated to Riddell. Even though Riddell did not win, he did get to walk away with something memorable.
Riddell’s damage was great from the fight, with some scary looking cosmetic marks. He took a massive cut above his eye, which needed instant stitches to get put together and heal in time.
UFC president Dana White was unfortunately absent from the venue following his COVID-19 diagnosis. While White recovers from the infamous illness and takes care of himself, he’s going to have to vicariously follow what happens in the Octagon.
Taking to Instagram, White posted a photo of Riddell’s open cut right above his eye. While Riddell is all stitched up by now, it’s scary to witness the kind of injuries UFC fighters go through.
White followed up with another Riddell photo. While he was stitched and ready to begin the healing process, he might have to expect a few cosmetic scares for a couple of months.
