Gross photo warning: Tony Ferguson’s surgically repaired knee is riddled with staples
Lest anyone doubt Tony Ferguson’s tale of woe and torn ligaments, the former UFC interim lightweight champion has pictures to prove he’s been through some rough stuff lately, and he’s not afraid to share them.
Five days after what should have been his fight for the undisputed (but still pretty disputed) title at UFC 223, Ferguson took to his Instagram to share a post-surgery look at the knee that knocked him out of the fight.
Not that this should really need to be said, seeing as how we already told you that this is going to be a picture of a man’s leg right after surgery, but the photo below is pretty graphic. And by graphic we mean gross.

Clearly, your dude T-Ferg is rocking some Frankenstein business right now, but it doesn’t seem to have affected his unique approach to capitalization, or his view of himself as the rightful champ.
Only trouble with the latter part is, the UFC doesn’t seem to agree. And with a leg that doesn’t look like it could make it through airport security, it could be a while before Ferguson is fit enough to get back in the cage and make his case. Until then, though, at least he has a positive attitude about it all.
