Former UFC fighter Fabio Maldonado posted pictures of his blood loss on Instagram while waiting to be treated for an undisclosed accident.
UFC veteran Fabio Maldonado lost a big amount of blood following an undisclosed accident which left him with a huge gash in his right wrist, which forced him to be rushed into surgery. While waiting to be treated, however, the fighter snapped a couple of pictures and posted them on Instagram. A warning that the pictures are graphic.

On the posts, Maldonado wrote the following:
“I lost a lot of blood, but thank God I’m already headed to surgery. I’m being rushed to surgery here in Sorocaba. I lost a lot of blood, but I’ll be okay, if God wills.”
Fabio Maldonado recently snapped a four-fight losing streak in his last outing, when he defeated Abdl-Khamid-Davlyatov by TKO at Eurasia Fight Nights on March 5. He was released from the UFC after a unanimous decision loss to Corey Anderson in November 2015, and most notably lost a highly controversial decision to Fedor Emelianenko last June in Russia. The 37-year-old has also since returned to his pro boxing ways, winning a couple of fights in Brazil.
