Nate Quarry Suffers Horrific Facial Injury Against Jorge Rivera (Pics)

At last months UFC Fight Night 21 event, Nate Quarry lost by TKO to fellow middleweight veteran Jorge Rivera. What wasn?t clear immediately after the event was just how bad the facial injuries sustained by Quarry during the fight were.

 

Speaking on his facebook account, Quarry reveals that, ?As I get up off the mat at the end of the first round you can see the whole left side of my face sag. Multiple fractures.?

 

For 99.9% of the population that would be the signal to wave the white flag and get to a hospital asap.

 

Quarry had other plans however.

 

?In my corner Stitch is trying to stop the blood, he tells me my nose is broken. Sorry Stitch, my nose may be broken but it wouldn?t bleed like that. My septum is broken and is pouring blood into my nasal passages and throats. And a thought went across my mind, ?they should stop the fight. I?m broken. ? That thought seemed to cloud my mind for hours. In reality I?d be surprised if it lasted more than a quarter of a second. Then another thought prevailed. ?You came here to fight and I?ll be damned if I?m gonna end a fight on my stool in my corner.? And I went out with all the fire I could muster. And I did what I always do, leave it all in the cage.?

 

Unfortunately that meant taking more punishment in the second round, though mercifully the referee stepped in to end the fight fairly quickly.

 

In addition to a broken nose and toe, Quarry had suffered between three and four fractures in his face which resulted in him requiring 13 screws to be inserted to hold it all together.

 

All of this sounds bad enough on paper, but it really gets brought home to you when you see the pictures of his face pre-surgery. He doesn?t even look like the same person!
