Alistair Overeem suffered a brutal lip injury during a Saturday UFC fight.

During a loss to Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Overeem split his lip apart, and the photo might be enough to make you want to puke. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

That’s without a doubt one of the worst injuries I’ve seen in sports in a long time, and it might be the worst I’ve seen in the UFC in years. If that happened to me, you can just go ahead and put me down. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

It’s not just a minor cut. His lip got split in half. I’m not sure how much worse it could have gotten for Overeem.

He gets beat and he gets his face rearranged. That’s the definition of a bad night.

Hopefully, Overeem turns out to be fine, but that’s just an insanely graphic injury to deal with. I’m not even sure how you fix that.

I’d imagine you stitch it up, but I honestly don’t know.
