While Page (11-0 MMA, 7-0 BMMA) celebrated his award-winning knockout, “Cyborg” (21-18 MMA, 1-2 BMMA) was carted away for medical care. We soon knew the true severity of the injury: Santos’ skull had literally been caved in. “Big” John McCarthy officiated London bout, which earned MMAjunkie’s “ Knockout of the Year ,” and the seasoned referee said the impact “ sounded like a baseball being hit out of the park.” UFC commentator Joe Rogan chimed in by describing the fracture as “ the worst MMA injury ” he’d ever seen.
