Accident-insurance coverage saves UFC's Cub Swanson from $50,000 injury costs   [View Full Version]

With one look at Cub Swanson's medical records, you know the guy has suffered more than his fair share of bad luck.

The latest? A sparring injury that resulted in orbital, nasal and cheek fractures, as well as a broken jaw. Seven weeks after the injury, the UFC fighter remains on an all-liquid diet.

Still, there was a little good luck: As the UFC's first fighter to use the organization's recently enacted accident-insurance coverage, he saved himself a whopping $50,000 in out-of-pocket medical costs.

Wow, I wonder what happened? With injuries like that, you'd think he fell out of the ring onto concrete or dropped a weight on his face. Hope he's ok soon!

That's some serious sparring they're doing to wind up with injuries like that.

Either that or the dude needs to drink more milk.
