UFC legend Ronda Rousey nearly lost her finger while filming on the Fox show “9-1-1.”
The retired fighter posted a photo of her finger nearly chopped off Tuesday on Instagram, and explained it nearly got sliced off after “a boat door fell” on her hand on the very first take of filming. Shockingly, she said she toughed out the scene before noticing the gruesome injury. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)
She was then rushed to the hospital for immediate medical attention and already has “50% range of motion back in 3 days.” Take a look at the grisly photo below, but be warned that it’s very graphic. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox. Freak accident, first take of the day a boat door fell on my hand, I thought I just jammed my fingers so I finished the take before looking (I know it sounds crazy, but I’m used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I’m supposed to) after a break in the action I told our director the situation and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where they promptly reattached my bone and tendon with a plate and screws. I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover. Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50% range of motion back in 3 days. There’s so much more than I can write here, stayed tuned via @rondarouseydotcom for the full story. And of course tune in to see how well I can act like my finger didn’t just fall off in this upcoming season of @911onfox
You know somebody is an absolute badass when they nearly had a finger diced off and they don’t even stop filming. I’d be on the ground begging for a bullet to put me out of my misery if that happened to me.(SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)
Just have the doctor end it right on the spot!
Clearly, Rousey is a cut from a very different cloth than your average human. She got her tail whipped a couple times fighting, and I don’t think either came close to the injury above.
Getting punched in the face is one thing. Getting parts of your body nearly cut off is a totally different ballgame.
Major props to her for being one of the toughest women the sports and entertainment worlds have ever seen.
We could certainly use a few more like her.
