I was doing my morning surfing across the web and came across a few images from last nights Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum event on MMAMania.com, so it inspired me to put together some of ‘The Ugly’ images from Saturday’s event in Dallas, Texas.
KJ Noons had his face rearranged to look something like the elephant man during last nights fight with Jorge Masvidal. Props to Ric Fogel for ESPN.com for the photo
Lightweight Conor Heun earned a unanimous decision over Magno Almeida during the preliminary card and got caught in the remaining moments of the fight with an arm bar. Heun refused to tap and you can see the results of the injury on his elbow. Click HERE to listen to his post fight comments. Props to Tracy Lee for Yahoo! Sports for the photo.

Lightweight Justin Wilcox barely made it into the second round when he received a nasty eye poke from opponent Gesias ‘JZ’ Cavalcante. The bout was stopped and declared a ‘No Contest’. Wilcox posted this photo via Twitter @JustinWilcoxMMA who posted this message with it “On the way to the hospital, nobody cam stop me with legal move”

Now match this photo with the Conor Heun photo above and you get the idea of how painful it was. Photo by Esther Lin via Getty Images.
Not really that ‘Ugly’ of an image but I think the expression on Brett Rogers face says it all. He was choked out by Josh Barnett in the co-main event during the second round.
