After going to battle with the Korean Zombie, it was expected that both guys would come out with a few bumps and bruises. Expectations were definitely met, as both guys were a complete mess after their 5-round war. Rodriguez got on the horn with TMZ and showed off his battle wounds.
His nose and foot took the brunt of the damage and both were pretty destroyed. His foot, especially, looked terrible. The foot was so swollen that he looked like he was walking on Sherman Klump’s leg.
It’s just another hazard of the MMA job and I think deep down that fighters actually love getting busted up. On some level you would think that they have to love it, because getting punched and bent every which way is not a normal thing.
