Akira Corassani shared this x-ray pic if his broken nose, which he suffered just 25 seconds into his fight against Maximo Blanco last night at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 Finale. Blanco was disqualified for the errant blow, which was not his first brush with borderline (and illegal) strikes. Corassani also sustained a concussion, which he claims feel worse than his nozzle: "The dizziness got worse gradually and I was rocked as hell. Truthfully, I don't remember much but this was not the way I wanted to win, I was more than ready for this fight and due to a stupid move the fight was ruined. Thanks for all your support and I'll be back soon!" For complete TUF 18 Finale results check out our comprehensive story stream right here. Photo via Instagram.com (akiracorassani).

Check out the illegal knee that Maximo Blanco dropped on Akira Corassani to force a disqualification in their TUF 18 Finale bout earlier this evening. This appears to be right after the shot landed because instant replay showed that Corassani clearly had one knee down. Anyone care to (dis)agree?

According to a report from Sherdog.com, sources close to the Pan-American bronze medalist wrestler are confirming that Maximo Blanco has signed a four-fight deal with Strikeforce. Blanco has impressively ascended through the ranks after entering the sport as a training fighter under the Sengoku banner. He amassed a mediocre 2-2-1 record in his first five appearances, but proved he had huge potential with stunning displays of power against Hiroki Aoki and Seigo Inoue. He won his next six consecutive fights, defeating Katsuya Inoue for the Lightweight King of Pancrase crown, Strikeforce veteran Rodrigo Damm, and most recently South Korean Won Sik Park. The combination of world class wrestling ability coupled with the speed and power of his stand-up game could prove to be a tough skill-set to counter with some more seasoning.
