The photo on the left is the a pre-fight poster of Diaz with a clear face. The Diaz on the right is what was left of his face after his fight with Henderson. Henderson took his time in creating a train wreck of Diaz’s face in the fight which went all 5 rounds. It was reported that Henderson landed 133 strikes throughout the 5 rounds.
With all this talk about post fight faces we got to thinking about the worst faces ever after an MMA event. I bet everyone conjures up images of blood, bumps, and bruises when considering which post fight faces have the been the ugliest of all time. Let us know if you agree or disagree with our list down in the comments.
Top 3 Worst Faces After MMA Fight
#3, Diago Sanchez
Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann met early this year in what was one of the most exciting—albeit poorly judged—fights of the year. Although this is close to being number #2 Sanchez just doesn’t have the forehead damage that our next post fight train wreck has.
#2, Fedor Emelianenko
MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko met Antonio Silva in the cage. It looks like Fedor took several rug burns to the forehead along with jabs to his eye. You certainly wouldn’t see Fedor’s face like this in the days of PRIDE.
#1, Mark Hominick
We kept trying to put Hominick higher in this list but just couldn’t bring ourselves to do it. Even though there have been faces much bloodier then Hominick’s no one has quite looked so deformed with his baseball-sized hematoma protruding from his forehead. This picture was taken after he fought and lost to Jose Aldo at UFC 129 for the UFC featherweight championship. The best part about it is that even though it looks bad he healed up fine.
