Pic! Aliev's Eye Was Brutalized By Alves At UFC 224

6

It may not have been the finish that Brazilian welterweight contender Warlley Alves was hoping for earlier tonight (Sat., May 12, 2018) at UFC 224 from inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but he'll have to take it. After two back-and-forth rounds chock-full of short punches and perfectly-timed power shots, Alves' opponent, Sultan Aliev, suffered too much swelling on his right eye (shown above). The nasty injury forced cageside doctors to step in and call the fight before the start of the third round. For complete UFC 224 results and coverage click here.
