Robert suffered a shocking blow in the second round at the UFC’s Apex facility in Las Vegas.

And while Cut bled badly during the fight, images shared later showed just how gruesome the injury was.

Photos showed that Roberts’ skull was split from the bone down, necessitating several stitches to join it back together.

Both fighters had their moments on the ‘Prelims’ undercard at UFC Fight Night 195 but Roberts did just that in the eyes of the judges to win.

Croydon Man last fought in November 2019 when he scored a KO in the second round against Zelim Imadev.

Russian Emiev was on the same card almost two years ago, but has been more active since then, stepping into the octagon twice.

The women’s featherweight headliners at the top of the bill in Nevada were Aspen Ladd and Norma Dumont.

Veteran star Holly Holm was due to face Dumont, but was forced to pull out at short notice due to a knee injury.

Brazil’s Dumont claimed victory in a unanimous decision over Ladd, who was back in action after a scary incident earlier in October.
