Pic of the Day: Leslie Smith’s Gruesome Ear Injury (Graphic)

Number 13 ranked UFC women’s Bantamweight Leslie Smith went to battle with sixth ranked Jessica Eye yesterday at UFC 180, and things got pretty gruesome.

Mid-way through the very first round Eye caught Smith with a clean shot to the ear, which split Smith’s ear open and caused some profuse bleeding that would continually get worse as the fight went on.

Despite protest from Smith, the fight would finally be called to an end a minute and a half into the second round via doctor’s stoppage and with good reason.

Below are images of Leslie Smith’s ear both during and after the fight.

CAUTION: Both images are very graphic.
