John Moraga's Nose Needed Four Stitches, But Is Not Broken
UFC flyweight contender John Moraga managed to escape serious injury following a technical knockout loss to John Dodson at the UFC Fight Night 42 event last Sat. night (June 7, 2014) in Albuquerque, New Mexico (full recap here). So if his nose wasn't even that bad to begin with, why did they stop his fight against "The Magician?" According to this post, "Chicano John" isn't quite sure himself.
Sanchez-Pearson decision might be worst in MMA history, and that's saying something
We knew there was something in the air way up there in Albuquerque, N.M. What we didn’t know is that there’s also apparently something in the water.
We’re not talking the usual American tap water cocktail of arsenic and copper, either. We’re talking vision quest-quality hallucinogens here. The good stuff. The oh-no-my-face-is-melting stuff.
