Noses aren’t supposed to look like that.
Mike Perry lost a split decision to Vicente Luque, and it looks like he lost his nose at the same time as well. Check out a photo and a gif of the gruesome break below:
Here’s how the action unfolded during the pretty bloody bout:
Round 3 - This fight could go either way. Luque immediately takes control of the Octagon. Perry throws a leg kick, Luque throws a head kick but neither land. Perry with a nice step-in knee to the body. Stiff jab from Perry. Nice leg kick by Luque. Jab by Perry. Leg kick from Luque. What else is new. A jab and a leg kick from Luque now. Multiple leg kicks by Luque. Nice left cross by Perry. The American has a high single leg but Luque fights it off. Perry has the Brazilian fighter against the cage. More big knees to the leg by Perry. The crowd boos the stalemate against the cage. Phenominal! Mike Perry just flipped the bird at the Uruguay crowd. The referee eventually separates things. A nice jab to leg kick by Luque. Huge leaping knee lands for Luque but Perry uses it to get a takedown. Luque has Perry in a guillotine. The blood is pouring from Perry’s head. Perry is trying to punch the body. Luque is literally juicing Perry’s head. Perry is throwing more and more punches at Luque’s body. Perry slips out. There is so much blood on both men. 10 seconds left. Perry starts opening up with ground-and-pound, but backs out and raises his hands to end the fight. Holy heck, Perry’s nose is badly broken! it was from Luque’s flying knee. I was about to score the round for Perry, but that nose is so badly broken. 10-9 Luque.
