UFC Uruguay: Mike Perry suffers brutally broken nose against Vicente Luque

UFC Uruguay: Mike Perry suffers brutally broken nose against Vicente Luque”

"Platinum" Mike Perry won't soon forget his trip to Montevideo to fight South American star Vicente Luque after the American found himself on the receiving end of what some fans are calling the "worst" broken nose in UFC history.

In the end, the judges saw it as a split decision in favour of Luque - moving his UFC record to 10-2, with this fight, in particular, standing as a truly memorable feather in his cap.

He also commented on the knee that obliterated his nose. But it's arguable that his stock actually rose despite losing, as he managed to go a hard full three rounds against one of the welterweight division's top contenders in Luque.

It was Perry's gruesomely displaced nose, which prompted plenty of online reactions.

UFC shared a footage of Luque's post match interview on YouTube after the fight had finished.

The injury was so bad Perry was taken to hospital for a CT scan because "he was apparently having some trouble breathing after the fight for obvious reasons", MMA Fighting reporter Damon Martin tweeted. Kawa said he had some previous fractures in his nose that had to be taken care, as well, so the surgery was a bit lengthy.

Some good news did come out of UFC Uruguay for Perry however, as he and Luque received a $50,000 "Fight of the Night" bonus for their performance at the event. He expected to remain in Uruguay for at least a couple days.
