MMA Flying Knee Strike Fallout

Post by Grandpa's Spells » Mon Jun 05, 2017 5:29 pm

That knee that E. Santos took to the skull a while back had a pretty gruesome injury where his skull was caved in:

I looked online to see if Brian Wood, who got K.O.'d by a knee from Chinzo Machida turned out OK. Not really, his comments from months later:
So i have multiple fractures in my right cheek, roof of mouth and upper jaw and i will have to get 2-3 metal plates surgically implanted to pull things together again. the cheek is the worst and there are few skull pieces indented and floating out place. the roof of my mouth is cracked up middle and i can feel bones moving up into my sinuses and inner skull but bones are binding together slowly. TMJ area of jaw is cracked as well mid jaw causing my right side upper teeth to move inward and my teeth are not lining up properly but close. so next friday it looks like i will go into surgery and have these things fixed followed by possibly wiring my jaw shut for 2-4 weeks. yay!! but i know that i am blessed regardless...could have hit my eye, nose or front teeth and been a lot worse.

Both retired from the hit. Machida's only 145 pounds.

Uh, yeah. It's bad for your health to take a knee to the dome.

Santos probably shouldn't have been fighting anymore, anyway

Friend of mine took a knee to the sternum playing BJJ, diving in for a double-leg takedown, almost ~2 years ago. Cracked it. He had to take a year off from training. He says it's still sore, especially when the weather changes.

The sternum! And these weren't professional fighters, just recreational guys.
