Gian Villante needed just 10 seconds – just 10 seconds to shake off an accidental eye poke and get back into his fight at Saturday's UFC 159 event.

Instead, Villante (10-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) honestly answered that he couldn't see at that exact moment, and his light-heavyweight bout with fellow Strikeforce import Ovince St. Preux (13-5 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was instantly waved off.

That was one of the worst calls I've ever seen in MMA. They need to team the ref up with Kim Winslow put them on a one way ship to the middle of nowhere!!!

Gian should be pissed. Lackluster performance with a loss may get him cut now
