Eddie Wineland: If You Want to Stay Pretty, Get Out of MMA

By Sherdog.com Staff Jun 29, 2012



Eddie Wineland, on “The Savage Dog Show,” discussing whether it bothers him that he’ll have a scar on his head for the rest of his life after beating Scott Jorgensen:

“Absolutely not. I’m a fighter. I’m a fighter. I’m a warrior. I chose my path. I know the consequences. I broke my jaw before. I’ve had cuts before. My brows are all banged up. My ears are all mangled. It comes with the territory. If you sign up for this sport wanting to stay pretty, you’d better just turn around and walk out the door. … He caught me with a good jab in the first round, and I was actually seeing double out of my right [eye]. It was kind of blurry. Then coming into the second round, my vision had kind of repaired itself and then he hit me with just a light hook. It didn’t even take much and I was blurry again. Then he busted me open with that knee. I’m dripping a little bit of blood in my left eye and I’m seeing double out of my right. I did the best I could to wipe the blood out of my left, and now I’m seeing three of him. They always say hit the one in the middle, and that was the right one to hit.”
