Cris Cyborg Justino posted a photo on Sunday that shows the gruesome damage her ex-husband Evangelista Santos suffered in a loss at Bellator 158 on Saturday.
Bellator 158 took place in London, with Santos losing to Michael Page in the second round of their main card bout via flying knee. Santos went down in pain immediately, and now it’s clear why.
Santos suffered a fractured skull in the loss. You can visibly see the front of his skull above his eyes with a major dent in the photo shared by Cris.
In her post, Cris Cyborg Justino said Evangelista has not had surgery yet because doctors are concerned about swelling in his brain. She also says they are planning to set up a GoFund Me.
“Fight fans Please say a prayer for my Ex husband Cyborg Santos,” Cris Justino wrote on Instagram. “Many of you watched him fight on Spike TV this weekend when he suffered this injury while fighting in London. Cyborg is still in the hospital in the UK, and they are not sure when he will be able to fly again. He has not had surgery yet and their is worry the brain can continue to swell causing more damage. @bellatormma is suppose to be responsible for all medical procedures needed to fix this injury from the fight, however Cyborg is going to be unable to work for sometime and we will be putting together a #gofundme for Fight fans wishing To sponsor him And his Family at this difficult time. Thank you God for your protecion, The dr said this very Easily could have been life threatening. Please show your support for the fighters and share.”
Santos fell to 21-18 with the loss, but all anyone cares about with him right now is his health.
