Rich Franklin injury from Dan Henderson eye poke at UFC 93 does not require surgery (Pic)

Quoteworthy:

"After losing the decision to Dan Henderson, Rich has some healing to do. He had to get stitches in two spots on his head from the head butt, and stitches on his shin from one of his kicks. Everyone has been asking about his eye -- from the eye poke at the end of the fight -- and we are happy to say he doesn’t need surgery. He does have a cut on the white part of his eye and a slight tear, but it doesn’t require surgery. Pictures have been posted so you can see what it looks like now."

Perhaps it looks worse than it really is ... although the sight of Rich Franklin's mangled eye in the wake of his fight against Dan Henderson at UFC 93: "Franklin vs. Henderson" looks grizzly. The good news is no surgery is needed. Anthony Johnson was not so lucky (he was felled by an accidental eye poke just last year, which needed surgery to fix). "Ace" caught a finger in the eye during the third and final round of the main event fight in Dublin, Ireland. He went on to lose the contest via split decision.
