Dustin Poirier has taken to social media to reveal a disgusting facial injury that his teammate Johnny Eblen suffered at Bellator 299.

Eblen took on Leon Edwards’ brother, Fabian, and Eblen put him out with a nasty series of elbows to win the fight just 21 seconds into the third round on Saturday night.

The win was his 14th in a row but it wasn’t as straight forward as Eblen would have liked, as Edwards busted him open in the closing seconds of round number two with a perfectly-placed elbow.

Poirier, Eblen’s teammate, has since taken to social media to reveal the extent of the injury as he posted a gruesome photo of the cut.

‘Champ said its just a scratch,’ he wrote along with a photo of Elben’s forehead scar.

There was drama after the fight as Leon Edwards, brother of Fabian, tried to take on Eblen in the ring in a post-fight altercation.

However, the pair were separated as Eblen saw blood dripping down his face from the scar.

Fabian Edwards’ elbow will no doubt have a long-lasting effect on Eblen but it was ultimately the middleweight champion who came out on top once again.

The win moves Eblen to 14-0 in his professional career. The victory could potentially launch him to the top of the MMA Fighting Global rankings. 

It remains to be seen as to what is next for the UFC star, who is proving unbeatable in the Octagon so far.
