Being a professional UFC fighter comes with its risks, it is doubtless to say.

Broken noses, lost teeth, a few broken bones here and there… UFC fighters are pretty used to injuries like these and, more than often, they take them with a pinch of salt and just get on with it.

Ronda Rousey, one of UFC’s most bad-ass women, has recently shared a horrifically gruesome image of an injury that has truly sent our blood running cold.

Keep scrolling to learn of her most recent and hardcore injury…

Ultimate Fighting Championship involves MMA (mixed martial arts) style fighting and it is known for the “there are no rules” attitude held by the fighters.

The sport holds its fair share of women who prove themselves to be totally bad-ass.

Her popularity was gained in 2011, when she won the Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship, including winning numerous fights in MMA. Standing at only 5ft 6 while weighing 135 pounds, Miesha is a force not to be reckoned with and she holds impeccable strength and endurance.

Born in California, the thirty-two-year-old fighter was the first American woman to earn an Olympic medal in judo by winning bronze in the 2008 Summer Olympics.

She made UFC history when she successfully defended her title against Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, and she was also the champion of numerous events such as Strikeforce and King of the Cage.

She headlined the first-ever WWE pay-per-view event when she successfully defended her title at WWE Evolution.

Not only is she an incredible athlete, but she’s also appeared in her fair share of television and movie titles.

In 2014, she appeared in her first motion picture, The Expendables 3, and went on to appear in various other movies and TV shows such as Furious 7, Blindspot, and The Entourage all in 2015.

She is currently filming for her appearance in 9-1-1.

The Fox TV show explores the lives of fictional emergency service workers and what these people have to deal with in their real lives. Rousey will star alongside some big Hollywood names such as Angela Bassett, Kenneth Choi, and Peter Krause.

Accidents can happen anywhere… even on set!

But we’re sure that Ronda Rousey is more than used to “minor injuries.”

Despite her jaw not being fractured, the kick that she received to her face resulted in surgery and she wasn’t able to eat properly for months. She said to Eurosport: “It might be three to six months before I can eat an apple, let alone take an impact.”

She broke her hand and was forced to undergo surgery, meaning more time away from fighting. But, in classic Ronda Rousey fashion, she recovered quickly and didn’t let it stop her from defending her champion title.

Rousey recently took to her Instagram account to show off her most recent war-wound and it had nothing to do with being in the ring… believe it or not.

It happened when she was filming on set for 9-1-1

It was the first take of the day and a boat door fell on her hand. Believing that she had just gotten her fingers jammed, Rousey simply continued filming the scene without even looking to check her fingers. But when she did check…

As the image shows, the injury is horrific. She wrote on her post: “I know it sounds crazy, but I’m used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I’m supposed to.”

“After a break in the action I told our director the situation and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where they promptly reattached my bone and tendon with a plate and screws,” she went on to say.

Unbelievably, she was back on set the very next day…

“I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover,” she then wrote proudly.

“Modern medicine amazes me, I already had fifty percent range of motion back in 3 days,” she finished her post with.

From looking at the image, it’s impossible to fathom how on earth she could manage to do anything productive with her finger being in the state that it was.

It’s safe to say that Rousey is the most hardcore woman on this planet.

I don’t know about anybody else, but if that happened to my finger, I’d probably have numerous meltdowns and panic attacks… not to mention how difficult it would be to deal with the excruciating pain that would come with it. But not Ronda Rousey. She has proven to be a total bad-ass and it seems like she can handle pretty much anything that life throws at her. As she said on her Instagram page, make sure to tune in and watch the most recent season of 9-1-1 to see “how well she can act.” Speaking of UFC, did you hear that Justin Beiber challenged Tom Cruise to a fight?
