If an NFL player had an eye injury which took 3 years to heal from a flag being thrown, I'm thinking a fighter could get a similar injury from a toothpick. I could be wrong.

I'm sure its possible, but considering his job has him being punched in the eye on a regular basis, that's a far greater risk for an eye injury.

I also think its a far greater risk to himself than to anyone else. He's wearing a mouthpiece and the toothpick would be behind it. He'd need to have the mouthpiece knocked out then clash heads with someone while having the toothpick sticking out of his mouth with an end lodged in his teeth and then have the other end hit an eye to cause an injury to his opponent. I think the odds of that happening are about as likely as one of the fighters being struck by lightning.

In the future take it away from him as its a choking hazard, but otherwise no discipline is necessary.

I did not vote, but I will say that I am NOT a fan of the toothpick.
