Phil Davis managed to walk through his fight with Tim Boetsch with barely a scratch, but the scratch he took sure needed a lot of stitches to close up: 36 in total. From MMA Weekly:
“Thank God I didn’t go home like that. Knowing me being me, I wouldn’t have gotten medical attention right away and I would have gangrene and I’d probably lose my foot or something. Not even joking. It was cut all the way to the bone. It was about two inches to maybe two and a half inches long,” Davis explained.
The surprise about the cut basically came from the fact that little to no blood came out of Davis’ leg from the injury, even though the gash went all the way to his bone.
“It was deep and it should have been bleeding a lot,” Davis said.
