Kyle Daukaus Suffered Multiple Facial Fractures at UFC Austin



It was a rough night at the office for Kyle Daukaus at UFC Austin last month.

In addition to losing to Roman Dolidze via first-round knockout, Daukaus revealed that he suffered multiple facial fractures as a result of absorbing a knee to the face from his opponent in the finishing sequence on June 18.

“During the fight, I got kneed, obviously,” Daukaus said in a video on his Instagram account. “As soon as the knee landed, it kind of broke my face in three places. The scans I got, I had two orbital fractures, and I think I had a fracture in my eye socket as well underneath.”

Daukaus returned home to Philadelphia after the event and underwent surgery last week, where he had plates inserted into his face.

“Surgery went well, it was last Thursday,” he said. “I got three plates put in, unfortunately, in my face. I got three plates on my actual face, and then I have one underneath my eyeball, too, but the one underneath my eyeball isn’t really a plate. It just kind of molds to my bone, so it will eventually become one as opposed to the ones that are actually screwed in my face and my cheekbone. Things like this happen.”

Daukaus added that he is expected to need a recovery period of six to eight weeks before he can resume training. The 29-year-old known as “The D’Arce Knight” is 2-3 with one no contest in the UFC.
