Pic: Diego Sanchez Huge Eye Cut From Gilbert Melendez Elbow At UFC 166

+

Not even a small Gilbert Melendez-made window over the left eye of Diego Sanchez could keep "The Dream" from pushing a furious pace tonight at UFC 166, which takes place from Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The gash was suffered early in the first round and was checked by the referee in the second and third. And, in the final frame, Sanchez went completely berserk. Perhaps it was the smell (and taste) of his own blood ... or maybe he knew he had to score a finish to win ... or both. Amazing performance once again and an even more incredible fight.
