Rising UFC featherweight star Yair Rodriguez got a unanimous decision win over Daniel Hooker at UFC 192 in an entertaining contest. Rodriguez couldn't get his first finish inside the Octagon but nevertheless wowed the crowd with his amazing athleticism and remarkable spinning attacks.

During the 3rd round, Dana White tweeted out that Rodriguez was dealing with a broken foot sustained at an unknown point during the contest, and after the scorecards of 30-27, 30-27, and 30-26 were read out, Joe Rogan also noted the broken right foot of the TUF Latin America featherweight winner. You can see the bad injury for yourself in the video below:

It's all the more impressive that he got the win while fighting for at least a whole round on a broken foot, and at least this post-fight interview didn't end with him vomiting on the canvas as he did in his UFC 188 win vs. Charles Rosa.
