UFC star Anthony Smith recently shared a graphic photo of his hand injury.

Smith broke his hand this past weekend during a victory over Alexander Gustafsson at Fight Night 153, according to TMZ. A metal rod had to be interested into his hand, and the photo might make you sick. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

Imagine busting a bone like that and still winning the fight. If I ever break my hand in that fashion, you can go ahead and just put me down like a horse with a bum leg. There’s no chance I’d ever continue throwing punches. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

Not only did Smith finish the fight; he won the damn thing. It doesn’t get much more impressive than that.

In case you didn’t already know UFC fighters are insanely tough, the photos from Smith should be all the proof you ever need.

Let’s not forget: These are dudes who literally get punched in the face for a living. Apparently, not even a horribly busted up bone in the hand can slow them down.
