Rick Story may have walked out of the Octagon the victor after his welterweight bout against Tarec Saffiedine at last night's (Sun., May 29, 2016) UFC Fight Night 88 event (recap here), but it didn't come without a price.
For the next couple of days, he will know he was in a fight, as Tarec left his footprint plastered all over the inside of his right leg. "The Horror" took to Twitter immediately after his scrap to post the photographic evidence.

Thanks for the great fight @tarecfighter I'll be sporting you're foot print for a while. Hope the knee heels up fast pic.twitter.com/3GRP0etcOJ— Rick (@Rick_Story) May 30, 2016
If that isn't proof of just how hard "Sponge" -- the former Strikeforce champion -- kicks, then I don't know what is.
Nevertheless, Story took Tarec's best kicks and kept coming, earning himself a unanimous decision victory. Not bad for a man who had been sidelined for nearly two years with injury.
