Rory MacDonald disclosed that an incident with an avocado almost derailed his plans to fight this past Saturday night at UFC 170 against Demian Maia.

MacDonald cut himself while pitting the fruit, and had to go to the hospital to make sure he didn’t suffer any severe damage to his most useful MMA tool.

The Tristar Gym fighter posted a picture of the damage that was done after his win over Maia, which pushed him back to the forefront in the UFC’s welterweight division.

Note, the picture is slightly graphic.
