On Tuesday morning, UFC welterweight James Krause brought the “ewww” factor to the MMA world.
Krause (27-7 MMA, 8-5 UFC) defeated Sergio Moraes (14-6-1 MMA, 8-5-1 UFC) by third-round TKO on Saturday at UFC on ESPN+ 22 in Sao Paulo. After the fight, Krause posted a video of his injured foot being mended in the locker room.
The placement of the stitches is gruesome and unusual, at least to an outsider. The hemline placement? In between the toes – in an imaginably sensitive area.
On the ESPN+ post-fight show, Krause referenced the procedure and, somewhat understandably, cringed when talking about it. Before he thinks about returning to the cage, Krause said he’ll have to let his webbing heal.
“When I go home, I’m not going to go train for myself,” Krause said. “Because I need to take time off to heal up. I got stitches in the web of my toe. Yeah, which was terrible. So obviously, I’m going to take time to let that heal.”
