Mike Perry lost a fight on Saturday night, he may have also lost all functionality of his nose for the foreseeable future.
Perry faced Vicente Luque in the UFC co-main event in Uruguay on Saturday night.
As for the shot that caused most of the damage, it came in the form of a knee that landed directly on target.

The damage wasn’t immediately obvious, but it wasn’t long before the full extent of his injury became clear.

Perry got his hits in as well, particularly early on in the fight. But the judges and Perry’s face told the tale of who won the fight. Still though, full credit to Perry for refusing to quit despite a horrific injury.
