Picture Of The Day: Is This The Worst BJJ Injury Ever?

Mixed Martial Arts is one tough profession.  When you aren’t getting your lights knocked out in a fight, you are getting your toe snapped off preparing for one.  That appears to be the case in this picture, which was taken by UFC bantamweight fighter Miguel Angel Torres and posted on his TwitPic account.  According to Torres, the owner of the toe is some guy named Parrish and it occurred in his gym during a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training session.

And for those of you wondering if this was the result of some sort of crazy BJJ toe-lock, it wasn’t.  Parrish’s toe merely got stuck in between two mats.
