[GRAPHIC PHOTO\VIDEO] Leslie Smith's ear explodes from punch at UFC 180, Jessica Eye and Leslie Smith squared off in a spirited slugfest for most of the first round, until a right hand by Eye landed directly on Smith's left ear in the final seconds of the round on the preliminary card at UFC 180 Saturday in Mexico City Arena.

Smith's ear appeared to explode open near the top, separating into two distinct -- and fairly nauseating -- flaps of skin causing the doctor at cageside to recommend a stoppage at 1:30 of the second round, awarding Eye (11-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) the victory due to injury TKO.

While the injury appeared absolutely awful in real time, the post-fight photo is arguably even worse, as a the photo above features her ear—gaping, bloody hole and all. It's certainly not for the weak of heart.

With the loss, Smith is now just 2-4 in her past six fights and has only a 1-2 ledger since making her UFC debut in April.

Meanwhile, Eye claimed her first victory in 13 months; she has just a 1-1(1) mark in her past three contests.
