During the fight, Roberts suffered a gruesome head cut after his opponent landed a spinning elbow on him in the second round. Roberts started bleeding pretty badly during the welterweight fight. However, since the cut was above the hairline, it was difficult to judge the extent of the injury.

After the fight, UFC President Dana White shared a video of the head gash on his Instagram. Watch the injury below (Warning – Graphic Content)

Orthopedic Sports Surgeon and UFC ringside physician Dr. David Abbasi updated the fans on the extent of the injury. He tweeted saying, Danny Roberts suffered NASTY cut on scalp after an elbow! Below hair & skin is his PERIOSTEUM, the connective tissue directly under skull. Doc used Non-black suture, so its easier to remove in about 10 days! Heal up my friend @DanHotChocolate.”

Despite the nasty injury, ‘Hot Chocolate’ held his own and went on to win the fight. He is now on a two-fight win streak, his last win coming at UFC Fight Night 163 against Zelim Imadaev. Roberts won that fight via a knockout in the second round.

Emeev entered the fight on the back of a two-fight win streak. He won his last two fights against Niklas Stolze and David Zawada via unanimous decisions and entered the fight against Roberts as the favorite.

At the post-fight presser, Roberts himself said that he was confused with the scorecard. He said, “If it had been a little bit closer, I still would have known it would have been mine, but when I heard that 30-27, I was a bit like, hang on, who has given it to what way here?”
