From the images he shared via social media, it looks like Eryk Anders’ shoes and socks couldn’t help him avoid the horrific injury he got from the chainsaw. The chainsaw tore through the layers and gave him three big and deep wounds on his foot, for which he received numerous stitches.

Anders didn’t elaborate precisely on how the chainsaw cut into his foot. However, he wrote in the caption,” they don’t make left handed chainsaws.” He was asked how the incident happened in the comments section of his post. The UFC middleweight fighter wrote,” head kicked a chainsaw.”

However, knowing the nature of Eryk Anders, he is most likely only trolling. No one in their right mind would head kick a chainsaw.

Anders began his professional mixed martial arts career in 2015 and had his debut fight at Strike Hard Productions 40. ‘Ya Boi’ went undefeated for the first nine fights of his professional career and lost his first bout to Lyoto Machida at UFC Fight Night 125.  

Eryk Anders has not been having any great luck in the octagon lately. The fighter has won only four fights from his last ten in the octagon, out of which one was a no contest. Anders is coming off a recent loss to André Muniz at UFC 269.

His professional fight record stands at 14 wins, six losses, and one no-contest, which was against Darren Stewart. Anders is currently 6-6 in his UFC career and if he keeps losing his bouts, he will very likely be cut from the roster.
